Read in January, 1991

I read this book when I was about 14, after I had read and enjoyed The Caine Mutiny and decided to pick up any books I could find by the same author in the used bookstore. This remains my favorite of Herman Wouk's books. It may not be epic in scope, but it is very, very human. It spoke to me on a personal level in the way that only the greatest stories do. I do not know if this tale of young love would affect me as strongly now as a married adult. I think it would, but in a very different way.
