Award-winning journalist Elyse Singleton delivers what Essence calls “a gem - the perfect book to curl up with.”
Best friends Lilian and Myraleen, two African American women from rural Mississippi, travel to Europe during World War II to act as members of the Women’s Army Corps. During this time of segregation and destruction, both women discover love and heartbreak, triumph and defeat.

The narrators were extremely convincing.
The realistic nature.
The love scene of prisoner and heroine.
Would love to see more from author!
This is a beautiful story different from most, beautifully written, and beautifully performed. It is the depiction of lives we rarely get a glimpse of. I wholeheartedly recommend this gem of a novel.
Yes. The story line was pretty good
The narrators could have had a more 1930s southern accnt. I had to keep reminding myself the story took place back in the 30s .
I could. Unknown actors would be good.
The chapters speaking from Kellners point of view could have been left out. Unnecessary
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
This was a good book well narrated
I cannot think of a particular scene. It was a good book full out.
They were good.
I don't know what to compare it to, just read best friend forever by Jennifer Weiner which shows a similar friendship.tangled with envy and jealousy.but virtuous in the end.
Yea-This book gives a realistic view of Americana-it should be required reading for anyone interested in our nation's history.
No favorites-they were all well developed and interesting.
Looking for another book from this author
That life is worth living is the most necessary of assumptions, and were it not assumed, the most impossible of conclusions. G. Santayana
Boring, terrible narrator, awful characters. Just a complete waste. I just couldn't get into this book
