The story started out well, but did not fully develop. I was left feeling like i wanted to know more because it just finished.

It seemed to be bood at the beginning but it was only 31 pages so it kinda left you hanging i deleted it right after i finished it.

The author did an excellent job, the problem in my opinion was the storyline itself, not much in the way of conflict, I believe if the auther had approached from another angle the story would have benn better. over two stars for being bold enough to write

It's just not very good. Sometimes, the author writes with such intensity that I can feel the anguish of the heroine. Other times, it's like she's throwing details at me that I neither want nor need. It's jarring and knocks you out of the immersion in the story. There were times I had to reread what the author had even said, simply because she was over-describing the scenery. It's disappointing when there's such unrealized potential in a short story.

Too bad the author(courageous as she is; to even pen this subject) was not bold enough to write about the extent of suffering for those who dared to express their love for another outside of what was the norm in those times. 5 stars for the bold effort.

This has such potential but you were left feeling as though the book hadn.t really ended. It may hace been better if it showed the war thru his eyes and the waiting thru hers. Dancingkitten

I gave it three stars only because it was so short. I liked it,shows how racism plays out.

I'm not really into books with war in them but this was pretty good. Alison sits by the window waiting for her boyfriend to return from the war so they can be married. The kicker was WHY he had to join the army.
