Im not sure what to say. It was a slow read but this authors voice keeps you wanting to read. Its a beautiful story about friendship and forgiveness, however the love story killed me. Im sorry but I hate David right now. I feel like the story ended just as it was getting somewhere. Id like to see second book, after David comes home cause I feel like I was robbed.

ps....how does the author do what she did in this book and them give advice to girlfriends of soldiers?? This poor girl did everything she could and (view spoiler)
Not a book girlfriends of soldiers should be reading in my opinion, doesn't give them hope for a lasting relationship
