I loved the way this book tells a very realistic story of the period. The prose is not pretentious but somehow the author is still able to tell an intricate love story without the sappiness of a romance novel. The ending of this story left me feeling a bit emotionally torn regarding each character's respective fates.

Leslie I had the good fortune to see the movie in the theater less than a week after reading the book.
Since the author had written the screenplay, it was true to the story - the same narration and dialog also.
