    1. Under the Apple Tree is a story about World War II, but not the military battle kind or the kind that takes place in foreign lands, but this is the Garber family s fictional story about what happens on the home front while their brother son, Roy, is away at war And this is Roy s story too, as it relates to his experiences from just before he goes to war and after his return, as seen through his family s eyes Mostly, however, this is a story about Roy s younger brother, Artie, just a young boy wh [...]

    2. Close to being a five star Read it in just about 48 hours Great home front novel of WW2 told from the perspective of the younger brother of a young man fighting in the Japanese theater and all the complications of those times and of adolescence.

    3. This book captures the innocence of the Homefront during World War II through the eyes of an adolescent boy Funny, poignant, and sad, Under the Apple Tree creates a compelling picture of a midwestern life during that.

    4. Probably going to use this for book club Possibility of getting Dan Wakefield to our book clubif we buy 10 copies I would call this mens fiction I was ok with the coming of age story, but i wonder how sexual awakening of protagonist will play with my book club.

    5. Book club pick I was surprised I really enjoyed it We get to meet Dan Wakefield 6 8th and discuss his book.
