As far as historical fiction goes, this was an “easy read”. It wasn’t as heavy as many stories in this genre. Then in the author’s note, Kelly Rimmer says, “I do not believe it is the role of historical fiction to educate us about history…I do, however, believe that great historical fiction should pique our curiosity and inspire us to educate ourselves.” I LOVE THAT!!

It was also a story that translates into real life. The growth through maturity; the difference in times that this happens for people; complicated love needing to take a backseat to loving yourself first…not just WWII themes…life themes!!

Side note…I guess this is a sorta sequel. It stands on its own for sure, but the main character has been introduced in an earlier book called The Things We Cannot Say. Definitely recommend and will read others by her for sure!

This last month has been a long one…a lot of changes and a lot of stress…which all led to a lack of energy and brain space to read. I know, unlike me, huh?!?

But for the time it took me, I am so glad I read it! I had tears in my eyes several times; for the love this family had for one another, amidst the backdrop and secrets they carried.

This author represents “easy read” historical fiction in the two books I’ve read of hers, but her ability to create characters to love is wonderful. I will continue to seek out her books!… (més)

I enjoyed this new look at WWII, the events leading up to it, and the repercussions of it five years after it ended. Having the two protagonists write in different time periods could have been confusing, but I was able to follow pretty well. I was totally surprised about the rocket program, but never followed that field of science.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who got the names and stories of the two women in the World War II parts confused. Overall, I liked the book, but I may just be reading too many of these kind of stories.
