"This book is terrific [....] Rodgers' stories are imaginative and engaging. No wonder I think she's one of the best. I love the way she takes you step by step though Johnnie's life, whether it is about her family or her writing. I loved this book so much I was sorry I finished it in one day. Rodgers shows what a family goes though when one of them is off to war. My heart goes out to these families. With what is going on now in our country, Kathleen connects on all of this. Great book! Read Johnnie Come Lately first, then this one. You will love them both."
--Sharon Salituro for Fresh Fiction

--Elizabeth Marro, author of Casualties
