A heart-wrenching, gut-twisting story that everyone should read. Kristan Hannah knows how to wring the emotions out of her characters and readers, taking both on a roller coaster journey that makes you want to close the book because you’re not sure you can take any more, and yet, you can’t stop turning the pages.
My heart broke over and over and over again for Frankie, Barb, Ethel, and all of those who served during this horrific war. Yet, as a woman, I couldn’t have been prouder of these ladies (all of the women) who risked their lives to save so many others. Their strength, their resilience, their compassion… While this might have been fiction, you know there are thousands of real Frankies, Barbs, and Ethels out there who went through this, who put it all on the line to bring our loved ones home to us and Kristan Hannah did a beautiful job of showing the good, the bad, and the ugly of this time in our history.
Be prepared to cry…sad tears, angry tears, and happy tears for this wonderful story of war, heroism, love, family, loss, and friendship.
