What a beautiful story!!! While the description tries to bill this as a love triangle, it is really a sweet, coming-of-age story about a young girl on the WWII home front discovering the meaning of true love. There were some parts of the book that dragged a bit, especially the first five chapters...

More coming-of-age than romance, this is a sweet story of the journey of Alice-Ann from infatuated teen to maturing young woman. A great deal of that maturing has to do with recognizing the difference between a childhood infatuation and real, true love.
Accompanying the endearing and frizzy-haire...

While this novel was rather predictable, it was a sweet story. I especially loved how Alice-Ann's relationships with Irene, Aunt Bess and her father grew.

When I read about Alice-Ann, Mack, and Carlton I can see them in people I know. Reading Everson's story is almost like stepping into the past of neighbors a...

I'm conflicted (as per the usual) because the story itself was interesting, yet lacking; the characters were varied, yet shallow; the plot easy, yet predictable. BUT the cover is abso-freaking-lutley gorgeous! And, for the most part, I truly did enjoy reading this novel. The beginning is rather s...

Set on the homefront in WWII, it depicts the the hardships of those at home--the anxiety of waiting to hear from loved ones, the devastation to the whole town at a death. I could just hear the southern Georgia drawl in the dialogue, and the author brings the sweltering southern setting to life.
