Review: This book was full of character development and building relationships. I enjoyed this book because of it’s war time realism. It seemed to me, though I’m not very knowledgeable of the military and its equipment, that the military references were accurate and made sense. The character development was outstanding, but I do wish the story had a little more scenery depiction. I’m a sucker for good scenery, especially when it’s someplace I’ve never been. It makes the book stand out and makes it feel real. I would recommend this book to any War Romance fan.
