Peggy Serrano is on a quest to help her best friend, Jimmy, by finding out what happened to him during the war in hopes of unlocking a start to healing.
A compelling story of family and friendship, that explores the questions of faith, pain and suffering. Peggy is a hardworking young woman, I loved the friendship between her and the Barnett family throughout the story, as well as her determination to help Jimmy and Joe. This book does a great job of not only showing the horrors of the war, but also the aftermath and its toll. I loved how the author brought Jimmy to life through the eyes of those who loved him best, showing the man he was before and throughout the war.
Overall, a beautifully written book that explores hard question of hurting and why God allows suffering. I admired Gisela for her strength throughout her ordeal. Lynn Austin doesn't disappoint in this latest WW2 novel filled with faith, hope and love.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
