Challenges of living on the home front
The Audible reader of Barb Warner Deane’s novel, On the Homefront, helps bring the characters to life, effectively conveying the spectrum of their emotions, such as fear, anguish, and joy, as well as capturing their age, gender, and accent.
The novel convincingly illustrates the many challenges of living on the home front during World War II and also gives us glimpses of the places where men fought the war and brave women supported them. The story focuses on three young women, Ruth, Helen, and Lilly, who serve as a sisterhood, giving one another strength and encouragement. This is an endearing story, and I was touched by the courage and perseverance of these women.

A family during war
Most of us weren't even alive yet when the world was at war. We need to look back and learn from history. Our world cannot survive if history repeats itself. We must start thinking that we are world citizens instead of being divided by race and nationality. We need to start caring for our families, our communities and our world That is what the family in this book did They supported and cared for each other
