Teresa Medeiros
Jill Barnett has done a marvelous job on her first mainstream novel. SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY is a lovely and lyrical journey to the past peopled with characters who are as genuine and relevant as our own friends and family. She uses a deft hand and fast pacing to intertwine the five stories of the main characters as their lives approach a collision course. To be honest, WWII fiction is a tough sell for me, but I couldn't turn the pages of this book fast enough. The writing itself is exquisite and sh ...more
I really enjoyed this, it’s romance during a war so there are expected sad parts but I especially loved how she worked out the ending.
Sheila Roberts
This is a wonderful sweeping historical, beautifully written and engaging.
This is a complicated WWII novel. It's well done and the ending ties it all together.
Donna Hesselbaum
I really liked this book about WWII pilots and their love lives. Lots of adventure and characters you care about. Great pool book.
I really, really adored this book! It was set in one of my favorite time periods, the era when women were gaining more freedom yet the romance and chivalry were still alive. The characters were real and relatable. I became a part of their lives while reading and thoroughly enjoyed the journey. This is tender, funny and sometimes heart-breaking story that will sweep you off your feet.

This gave us some interesting information about the early days of airplanes in warfare, and especially what women did to help the war effort. It had a sweet storyline that held my attention.
The WWII setting and stories were great, nice love stories although not enough character development for me. All tied up at the end.
Did start never finished wasn't captivating.And I don't like war stories.
Might try again sometime in the future.

Good book with believable characters with real-life flaws. I liked the WWII setting too. What a time that was.
Great book JB is a wonderful story teller. This is not set in my favorite time period but I still loved this book.
It's quite a good book, although it tends to jump from one perspective to another.
Very enjoyable, love the WWII time period.
