What A Story!
I admit to needing tissues every time Hattie read a letter from Arno and along with other readers, I'm certain, kept willing those soldiers to return safely home from the war.
This story was an amazingly well-written tale. One of those few that are so well done you feel as if you've stepped inside the pages and are walking side-by-side with the characters. That takes a gift. I've only read a few other authors with that capability.
