User reviews about the book
By Danielle Liger
I really enjoyed Nightingale and decided to try another Hannah book. I was surprised that the quality was so poor, like a high school student's writing style! The plot was predictable, the characters were fairly hollow, and the linguistic quirks were irritating. Don't know where her editor was on vacation...
She seemed to have researched just enough about this subject to think she sounded authentic, but it really fell flat. The story was a really good idea but the result, though there were a few touching parts, was just corny. And the 4/5 year old behaved like she was about 2, so that was also odd. Book fail all around.
This was a quick, engaging read that shed a lot of light on what our soldiers go through. I felt like Part 2 dragged a little bit and I really couldn't stand the daughters - their personalities were really over the top to me. Other than that, an emotional, worth-while read.
Couldn't put this book down!
One of the best books I have read in a very long time. Hannah really brought the characters to life and I was there every step of the way. I can't wait to read another one from this author
Another fantastic, "can't put it down" book by Kristin Hannah!
Great strong characters in a very timely situation for our country. Well developed & illustrates the hardships that our service men & women's families experience when there family members are at war.

What an emotional roller coaster. I haven't been this touched by a book in a long time. I can't count the number of times I cried.
What a great book especially from a woman's perspective!!
I am an avid reader, often staying up till the wee hours if a book peeks my interest. This one did, now I plan to read every book this lady has written.
A must read!!
Could not put it down! A must read for someone that has a loved one that has gone to war.
I absolutely loved the friendship between the fly girls!
A tear or two will be shed during the reading of this beautiful story.
This book was so touching.. I cried like I've never cried while reading before. each and every chapter had something to cry about.. Highly recommend it... It gave me a different point of view on our heroes. I thank all of my military friends as soon as I was done with the book..
