I'm re-reading this series because it has entered my heart, and doesn't want to let go. This fictional family is real to me, and I have learned a great deal from their "adventures." My favorite character is Wally, and I turn the pages quickly to get the latest updates on him. He was placed in the Bataan Death March, and spent the war in Japanese POW camps. After his liberation, he stayed for some time on an American base, healing and recovering, and gaining weight. He woke up, stood for a long ...more

Another series. I have a love/hate relationship with series because when I start one, I have to finish. Most of the time there are multiple books at 500+ pages.

I learned alot about history following the Thomas family beginning in 1938 in Germany with Elder Alex Thomas on a mission. While Alex wasn't able to complete his mission, his brother, Wally was dealing with becoming a prisoner of war on ...more

4.5. I really enjoyed reading these books. Some were better than others but overall they were really good. There were a few cliche characters, but for the most part I thought the author did a great job of telling a historical story with fictional characters who happened to be mormon. I would love my girls to read these as teenagers. Lots of subtle good messages about some of the harsh realities of life.

Have read and reread this series many times. One of my favorite series of LDS fictions. Gives perspectives of WW2 from Germany, the Philippines, Hawaii, and the U.S. The family dynamic is fun to keep up with as well.
