    WTF

    I'm 15, and I enjoyed reading this book and I awaited the happy ending, but in place I found the most horrible ending I have ever read in a book. It made me feel depressed and confused. I still have no idea in my mind how Hank ended up with the love of his life's sister!

    Berg has done better!

    This is the first book I've read by Elizabeth Berg that didn't have me spell-bound. I have highly recommended all of her books until now... this one I found repetitive and, frankly, boring. The characters seemed flat, the Irish accent of the parents artificial, and holes in the story line. I finished it but did a lot of skimming. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that her next novel doesn't disappoint!

    what was she thinking?

    I enjoy Berg's writing very much, and this story was touching until the end. The author and I are contemporaries and it is obvious that she grew up on the same stories of loyalty, faith, and loss in WW II as other early Baby Boomers. But the ending is poorly crafted, if indeed crafted at all. Does she want us to believe that the situation is unresolvable save for her heroic act? If so, she fails mightily and in the process ruins a good read.

    Disappointed

    While I felt that Elizabeth Berg did capture the feeling of our country during the second world war, I didn't connect with her characters. They seemed almost cardboard or superficial, never really developing anyone's innermost thoughts besides Kitty. Even she was a mystery when there was no explanation of what she did at the end. I like her books and will give her another try, but this one is not one I would recommend.

    Disappointment!!

    This book is everything you'd want in a great novel until...the author seems to have run out of creative juices and left us totally hung out to dry on that ending. I am so aggravated that I might not give her another chance to disappoint me.
