Summary
  • "Author Elizabeth Berg takes us to Chicago at the time of World War II in this story about three sisters, their lively Irish family, and the men they love."
  • "As the novel opens, Kitty and Louise Heaney say good-bye to their boyfriends Julian and Michael, who are going to fight overseas. On the domestic front, meat is rationed, children participate in metal drives, and Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller play music that offers hope and lifts spirits. And the Heaney sisters sit at their kitchen table every evening to write letters - Louise to her fiance, Kitty to the man she wishes fervently would propose, and the third Heaney girl, Tish, to an ever changing group of men she meets at USO dances. In the letters the sisters send and receive are intimate glimpses of life both on the battlefront and at home. For Kitty, a confident, headstrong young woman, the departure of her boyfriend and the lessons she learns about love, resilience, and war will bring a surprise and uncover a secret, and will lead her to a radical action on behalf of those she loves that will change the Heaney family forever
  • The lifelong consequences of the choices the sisters make are at the heart of this superb novel about the power of love and the enduring strength of family."--BOOK JACKET
