I love reading about the 1940's. It's hard to believe this is her first novel and I will be reading her next one!It was great to read a book set in the 40's That was primarily set in the US instead of Europe you could almost hear the big band music in the background and see them dancing at the USO as you read. This is one of the few books that I have read recently that I have liked all the characters. The book flows so well that you almost fell like you are with them as they go about their lives. The ending came all to soon and left me wishing for more . It would be great if Kristina would write another book telling us all what happen next in their lives!
