Tells a very American story of an ordinary family in extraordinary times, through their wartime letters. Letters document James and Elizabeth Quirk's struggles during WWII as he spends four years in the Army in Europe, only to return and be sent to the Korean battlefront a few years later. James later became the first publisher of , but at a cost to their post-war dream of reunion. When their son Rory goes to Vietnam, the dream runs out, in a stunning and unexpected way. Rory Quirk is an attorney and a writer. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
