#THESUMMERBEFORETHEWAR AVAILABLE 3/22/16 5 STARS!!!!!!! @SimonsonHelen @RandomHouse DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!! I LOVED this book. I'm not sure how many pages it was, but I know it was a long one because I spent long hours with these characters and enjoyed every minute of it. I got to know them before the war, during the war and after the war. I felt I really knew them. And, it was a great story! The ending while very, very sad (tissues needed) gave most people what they deserved and several air fist pumps were made by me.
It is truly a beautiful story with every emotion you can imagine. I was sad when I finished. I spent two whole days with these characters, they were family to me!
I want to thank Random House for approving my request for such an entertaining and enjoyable book and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. If you do nothing else, at least give this book a chance, you'll be glad you did.
