He bought two copies of it from me last week, one for himself and one for his father in Australia.
Anyway, he told me how much he liked it and asked me if it was based on a true story. I told him that it wasn’t but that I had met a lot of veterans and imagined what it would be like for a family still waiting for their loved one to come home from the war.
“It was very moving,” he said. “You really captured the home front well. I could really identify with the family. I know my father is going to love this book when he gets it.”
I’m sure he will.
