I loved the premise of the book. I have recently read the book, Radium Girls, that tells the true story of the dial painters and their fight with the radium industry. This was a nice story to go along with that. This book was divided into two primary sections that were interwoven. I loved the let...

This story is told by two people, one girl during WWI through letters to her beloved who is in the war overseas. She is struggling with the usual things such as famil...
