    An amazing read!

    Margaret Barnhart definitely has a way with words! From the moment I started reading this story, to the very end, I was captivated. The story was so detailed that I felt as if I was a part of hardtimes, grief, and the little bit of happiness that all of the characters shared as POWs. Margaret created a wonderful story to honor our troops and those who served in WWII. I would recommend this book to everyone!

    A great book!

    I wasn't sure this was the type of book that I would enjoy. However, reading just the first page, I was convinced. This book is a touching account of the lives of POWs. You will love the characters and really feel all that they had to go through. I laughed and I cried and only wish I knew more about each one. I would recommend this book to anyone!

    Great read.

    This book has good insight into the life of a POW in a Nazi camp. It is heart wrenching at times but shows the resourcefulness the POW's used to survive. You won't want the book to end. You will want to know more of Nick's life after the war.
