This is a beautiful and touching book. The letters, with their illustrations, reveal a great father who loves his daughter so very much; the historical information then allows the reader to understand the conditions under which he wrote and illustrated the letters. There is a perfect blend of the personal and the historical. Read it - it will touch your heart!

This book is a perfect balance of historical fact and emotion. The cartoons drawn and sent to a young doctors daughter in attempt to keep in touch and,I suspect, fend off the real emotions of being in a war.The book is engaging, beautiful ,happy and sad all at the same time.The coupling of historical facts and the wonderful cartoons make this book worth reading again and again. I know the people in this book and I still learned a lot about them. Thank you for this treasure.

This book is exquisite! As I read, my emotions bounced between heart-warmth and heartbreak. The letters and pictures to Ann were comical and showed the intense love and devotion her father had to her. With help from the historical pieces that the editor interwove, I felt a connection to the family and a better understanding of the Korean War. This amazing book is one that I will continue to treasure. (I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.)
