A recipient of numerous Christian and secular awards, including two Christy Awards for excellence in Christian fiction, acclaimed author Jack Cavanaugh has published more than 20 books.
The character I liked best was the German soldier. The interplay between him and the American nurse was handled so well. There are many moments when the reader is caught up in heart-pounding danger, but this book is SO MUCH MORE than your average danger-filled war novel. It is about forgiveness, overcoming prejudice and gaining freedom from bitterness. This is a truly memorable read.
I loved it. It made me laugh, then cry, then laugh again. The story was like real life. Like a movie. It was filled with so much hope, so much faith, and so much action amd adventure. I read the whole thing through and when it ended I had a smile on my face.
Story was pretty unrealistic for WWII even if fiction. Ending was horrible , won't say more so I don't ruin it
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I'd change the ending! I felt cheated - it was way too abrupt. The ending of the war and the time after were condensed down to the point I kept thinking I'd missed something and really, that could have been so interesting.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The most interesting was her time in the woods - especially in the Belgian house and when they ran into the soldiers in the jeep. The least interesting was her relationship with the obnoxious army doctor.
Which scene was your favorite?
I liked the scene when Mouse wheeled the P.O.W. into the Christmas party, but I wish it had been expanded on.
Excellent! Couldn't stop listening.
This was a wonderful book. It's main characters are soldiers during WWII, just on opposite sides. This book to me is all about finding love where you least expect it and how we should always forgive others because that is what God does for us. Highly recommended
