it was amazing

Absolutely one of Mr. Pitts best books and I can’t rave enough about it. It is set in 1941-45 but is pertinent for current times. It was truly gut wrenching and heart breaking yet considering the time period the ending was a hopeful as it could be. I couldn’t put it down, yet didn’t want it to end and had to force myself to read the last 50 pages slowly, savoring every word.
Like Freeman these two books were more truthful than not and served as a history or civics lesson that many of us never learned in school. This was my fifth Pitts book and I can’t thank him enough for writing such brutally honest and truly beautiful stories. Each one is a gem unto itself.
