This book had a very interesting storyline. We start out in modern day New York City where we meet Jamie and Sean. The other stories intertwine together through letters written by Sean’s family from the past. We travel to 1973 during Vietnam war then back to Jamie and Sean. We then head to 1941 and the beginning of WWII. After another stop back in the present we head all the way back to the civil war. The book concludes with present day.
What I liked: I really like how this story was told. It felt like one novel not 4 shorter ones. Having one of the stories be the focal point was also fun as it felt more like a regular novel. The authors did such a good job of writing together I kept forgetting that 4 people wrote the book. The use of the letters to hold the story together made it unique.
What I did not like: I wish Helen and Bernie’s story(1941) had been a little longer. It also felt like that story was left hanging a little bit and it would have been nice to know how it all turned out for them.
Over all I really enjoyed this book I even cried at the end. I just really liked how all the stories tied together and make the whole book uniform. A must read!
