A captivating WWII story is embedded within this wonderfully satisfying, well-woven story of regrets, ambition, love, and reunions. I'd expected more of the history of the 11th Armored Division. That history is carried by the two irascible but droll ...more

“To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.”
Soren Kierkegaard

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”

C.S. Lewis
“I have seen great beauty of spirit in some who were great sufferers. I have seen men, for the most part, grow better not worse with advancing years, and I have seen the last illness produce treasures of fortitude and meekness from most unpromising subjects.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

C.S. Lewis
“The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back.”
C. S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

C.S. Lewis
“Free will, though it makes evil possible, also makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having.”
