I could not stop listening. It felt like I was there reliving history. Looking forward to enjoying the 3rd book
Love to story and characters, but the author seems to fall back on a convention of "liberal = good" and "conservative = troglodyte" It must reveal the authors own beliefs...
Has the otherwise talented reader never talked with an American girl not raised in the Bronx? Every time poor Daisy, as portrayed, spoke a word my skin crawled. No private school educated girl from Buffalo--and I have known a few well-- would sound like that.
I was captivated by this story and found that listening to the history of WWII as told through the eyes of characters I came to love to be absolutely spellbinding. I'm starting book 3 immediately. Book 1 was equally amazing.
so much well know history took place during the time period covered in this book. you really get a sense of what it might have been like to live through these events and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I would have like a little more history or additional perspectives on a few of the big events. so many potential things to cover and only so many pages.
I loved this story. History was made absolutely riveting in this novel. I learned so much more about the history of the times portrayed in the book that I already thought I had known. There were things I learned that make me want to learn more about the people of those days.
I'm not a history buff, you don't have to be one to enjoy this book. What a story!! Everything from suspense to romance to thought provoking heart wrenching moments of stark beauty. Loved the journey and awesome character development. You know when you put down a book and you miss the characters like old friends...? this is one of those treasures...
