My Thoughts-

I have been learning about WWII in my Global History class this year and the descriptions in the novel were very realistic. I liked that he author wrote the book in three little parts, one for each of the main characters in the story. The book was an enjoyable and quick read. There was suspense, romance, and drama. The author did a fantastic job in describing the feelings of the characters and how they affected each other. I was not aware that she had written so many interesting books until I investigated the author's website. I look forward to reading Double Trouble, and the the next edition in the Brothers in Arms Collection.
