    11. Let me start by saying I enjoyed this story I read it in two weeks, which is quicker than usual for me for a 311 page book It was a good story, and it was the dream of every young person during the Second World War that did not come true for many that the person they wed would return to them It s also a great book club book, and the author helpfully includes some discussion questions at the end for that purpose.While it was an enjoyable story, to be sure, it says it is based on a true story howe [...]
