My thoughts: This book tells what it is like for women during and after wartime. There are a lot of ups and downs for a women who as a soldier away at war. The author creates a story that tells of love, loss, and hope. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more of this author’s work. **I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book from Head of Zeus in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
