really liked it
Read in October, 2011

My book club read this book, and we all really liked it. Those that remember, and even read it, in 1950s when it came out had very different reactions to it than those of us reading it now with more of a historical fiction perspective. I love that the two main characters are based on real people the author met after the war. I love how he tied their stories together and created really beautiful characters. If you like female characters who have grit and compassion, you'll like this book like I did.
