This is a gentle, very realistic, and emotionally true historical fiction. I like how Ellie is totally believable and how her and her family's struggles serve as a typical portrait of the WWII American home front. If there is any bias from the author, it is not heavy-handed and the readers are left to make their own conclusions and belief after reading the story.
