This book will probably be one of those books that lingers in my mind for a little while. It was beautiful, touching, and sadly haunting. There was suspense, adventure, and a love story at the core of this book. I was intrigued from the beginning as to where this story would go, and it kept me guessing to the very end. While some things were rather obvious, and sometimes a little coincidental, it didn't take away much from the overall story. My only complaint is that it felt a little too drawn out. It was very well written, but I'm not fond of lots of descriptive details and had that been eliminated I think I would have enjoyed it more. The story itself was quite captivating, though. I've always had an interest in WWII, and I learned things I wasn't aware of from this book. I enjoyed the transitions from past to present, and was totally enamored with the character and story of Andrew Deacon.
Awesome book. Romance, mystery, historical what more could you want. I become so involved in the characters lives and backgrounds. I couldn't put the book down. The history of WWII was fascinating. Loved the grandmother's story. Give it a try it will not disappoint.
