My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a stark and personal glimpse of war not just from the soldiers who served but also their families as they suffered the repercussions for years to come. Mixed in with the war is the examination of racism, sexism, and other types of bigotry that can often tear even larger rifts into communities. Each of the characters is believable and each has their own unique harmony within the refrain of the war.
Perhaps the only downfall was the constant switching between the points of view that sometimes left it feeling stilted rather than one flowing story.
Regardless, it is an excellent read and relevant to today's readers who struggle with some of the same trials of war and some new experiences that make their stories their own.
