In the letters the sisters send and receive are intimate glimpses of life both on the battlefront and at home. For Kitty, a confident, headstrong young woman, the departure of her boyfriend and the lessons she learns about love, resilience, and war will bring a surprise and a secret, and will lead her to a radical action for those she loves.
The lifelong consequences of the choices the Heaney sisters make are at the heart of this superb novel about the power of love and the enduring strength of family.

Couldn't Stop Listening
This book immediately brought me into the Heaney family's world which felt like a pretty good place to be. I remember my parents talking about W.W.II when my Dad was a pilot in the Pacific, and so many of the descriptions reminded me of things they had talked about. This book made me laugh and it made me cry, but most of all, it made me long for a time when the world was a much simpler place. I loved this book!

Not too satisfying
I'm a fan of Elizabeth Berg, and even attended a book-signing for this novel. While I love her other books, this one was not as satisfying. I was distracted by the constant over-use of brandnames, imagery, catch phrases, etc. meant to conjure up nostalgic memories, no doubt, in a more "mature" reader. I guess this book has its audience, but I'm more moved by her other works that deal with women her (and my) age.
