Overview

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, eighteen-year-old Robert Stuart had a decision to make: keep working at the steel mill in Warren, Ohio, or volunteer to serve his country. Anne Davis had a decision of her own to make. The girls in her high school were going to send letters to alumni who were going off to war. She looked at the list of soldiers and saw a familiar name: Robert Stuart.The letters Anne sent would mark the beginning of a relationship that would span sixty years, two marriages, two children, and three wars.Over half a century after those first letters were sent, the Stuarts' grandson, Kyle, began chronicling their life together. He would discover pieces of a family history that only he dug deep enough to learn. But in the back of his mind, one concern lingered: the story of a person's life can only have one ending, and his grandfather's health was deteriorating.

I find it serendipitous that the author's family lived in Warren, Ohio. My grandfather's name was Warren who served in WWII. The similarities didn't stop there. A lot of family reactions and opinions mirrored what I experienced in my own family growing up. This family biography brings alive one families path through war. Only I think more people than the author realizes will connect and appreciate this story. Well written and adds a personal account to the pantheon of books concerning WWII.
