Wonderful characters and story7 October 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
To me, there is something so special about a novel that tells a story through letters, and this book is very special indeed. Rita and Glory are strangers; Gloria lives in New England, Rita in Iowa, when they become pen pals during WWII. These women begin as strangers, but as time goes on their friendship and their letters become a lifeline. Their letters provide insight to their souls; to their loves, their doubts, their mistakes, and their fears. Their stories are incredibly poignant and honest, sometimes funny, sometimes incredibly sad, always touching. I loved that at the end of the book, we find out which author wrote which character and their letters, something that is not usually revealed. This book was originally published several years ago, but was re-released this year. Another fun part of this book was that the women shared wartime recipes, including tomato soup cake which is one of my husband’s favorites!

Home front Girls—remind us of the joy of receiving a letter3 October 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
I was a letter writer for many years, but now I send texts and emails. I still send cards— many, many cards. People tell me they love receiving my cards— that there is something special about finding a card in their mailbox, knowing that someone took the time to buy it, write it, stamp and mail it to them. Through their letters, these two women, strangers, from completely different circumstances, loved and supported one another through the dark days of a world war. They took us along with them, and we shared their lives. I did not want this story tons, and would relish a sequel. This would make a wonderful movie.

I loved this book!15 January 2020 - Published on Amazon.com
I've never read a book written entirely through letters. The authors did wonderful job of developing a compelling story line and incredible character development all through letters. There were lines I read a few times over (last letter to Sal) because the words were so beautiful. Initially I was hesitant to read another WWII but this one is very different than others I've read concerning the war. It describes the friendship of two women stateside and how they dealt with war times.The interview with both authors was also very interesting.
A story that transcends time17 November 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
In a divided time, this eternal message of friendship, sharing, love, acceptance and forgiveness is so important to embrace in our lives.
