This sentimental soap opera follows twin brothers Norman and Lucien from their youth in 1930s Oklahoma through World War II service together, to the surviving twin's death as an old man. Attending his deathbed is his wife, Mary Jane, the woman whom both brothers loved but only one married. Well not really. These are identical twins after all, and they can be hard to tell apart. Relying heavily on the "Foreshadowing" and "Dying in Loved One's Arms" chapters of the How-To-Write Manual, the tale celebrates family values, with hints of religious faith. Romance fans and admirers of Pratt's earlier novels, The Last Valentine and The Lighthouse Keeper, will find the dual love story brotherly and conjugal a satisfying yarn. Bruce Reizen's resonant voice adds gravity to an uncomplicated plot. Recommended for public library romance collections. Judith Robinson, Univ. at Buffalo, NY
Heartwarning story of two brothers (twins) that run a train station in Oklahoma, at the start of WW1 and both fall for the same woman, and then sent to South Pacific to war. A little trasure of a book.
very good book ........... suprise ending!
This book gives a history of WWII while following a creative love story. It truly brings out the trauma that our Veterans suffered not only during the war, but for a lifetime thereafter.
Two twins fall in love with the same gal. Both go to war. One comes back, the other doesn't.....Sad, but very touching book.
