review 1: This was an interesting book from a different perspective and experience during WWII. The story follows Juliette as she becomes a nurse in the Army in order to get closer to the area where her brother went missing. During her deployment, she comes in contact with a soldier who was in her brother's platoon, but he has suffered major mental trauma and isn't speaking. As the story unfolds, Juliette learns the true horrors of war and what the human mind can contain.
review 2: Not every single thing about this book is perfect, by any means. I struggled with rating it a four or five but decided to go with a five simply because when I was busy with everyday life, I found myself thinking about this book and sneaking in time here and there to read. The main character
... more is a young woman who enlists as a nurse during WWII in order to find out what happened to her older brother, who was reported missing. She grows and changes, as anyone would during war, I would expect. I have to say, the last bit of the book, specifically the epilogue, was my favorite. One thing I really wish was different was the aspect of the mysterious letter her brother wrote her, the cause of her enlistment, was never resolved. I highly recommend this one! less

Recommended historical fiction. Such great characters, thought provoking about the effects of war.
Couldn't put it down. Won't say more because I don't want to give anything away.
This book was ok I didn't really love it. It was nice idea but not wonderful
Maybe a 3.5.
