This is the second book in Evan Geilich's trilogy set against the background of World War Two. Once again, this is more a story of love and survival than a war story.
Jake Crowninshield, Harvard's last all American linebacker, walks off the field in late November 1941 after his final game against Yale. Three weeks later he is drawn into World War Two and a future that he could not imagine in England, the land of his ancestors.
Early on the morning of December 7, 1941 Manny Texeira punches out his time card from the night shift at Sonneben Tanning Company in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and heads home to hear of an attack on Pearl Harbor, a distant American naval base in the Hawaiian Islands.
World War Two is underway and Jake and Manny are off to their dates with destiny in England and France during the war and its aftermath.
