I have been to Germany once and it was great to have a chance to revisit Germany through this story. I liked reading about the travels the family went on, and the stories about the kids, which made me laugh out loud. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good family story!

I loved this book! I really felt that I was magically transported to Germany while reading this book. I love the way the author depicts Carmen's love of her family above all else, and their lives in Germany living in a military community as a civilian. It's a wonderful story, told with dignity. A definite must read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading more from Melissa Miles.
