This book reminded me a bit of The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. I loved the characters and it was such a pleasure to read. I also loved the author's use of the complexity of marriage. Not an action packed book. Just quiet and pleasurable.

This is not my usual kind of book but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. Brought back many memories of my own early years. Really enjoyed the writing and am anxious to read more by this author.

for a book starting off with WW1 and going to Vietnam this one had me hooked. From the voice of the mothers and wives this was something i wasn't sure i would like but i did. i got into the book and wanted to know what would happen next.
