Recommends it for: any girlfriend looking for a soul-searching, heart-warming good read

As the daughter of a WW2 vet, I can only imagine some of the sleepless nights my mother endured as Daddy spent 30 monthsoversees in the European Theater. This book was so touching.

A Baby Boomer with an English teacher and a social worker for parents, I grew up being challenged to develop my imagination, and to seek out for myself the meaning and significance of life. I learned early both the magic and mystery of stories and the ...more
