really loved that Not only is the story told about the Larsen siblings, but a friend of Vera s as well Her story made me smile I did want a littlewith Vera s and Dominick s relationship, but I really liked them both as characters Dominick had issues to overcome but he set a fine example to the town regarding a certain character Josette Andrew s wife was also a favorite Even though they had smaller parts in the book, Vera s parents were wonderful Until last year I hadn t read any books about WWII, and this is my third one I don t know if I would have been a very good wife during this period of

about WWII, and this is my third one I don t know if I would have been a very good wife during this period of time The men were gone off to war and the women had to take care of everything in addition to caring for the children, and there were food and gas rations and shortages to deal with on top of everything else.This story takes place in Belmont, Wyoming in 1946 when the men are coming home from the war The Larsen family is the main focus, and the lives of everyone in the family have been touched by the war We get to see how each of them Vera, Andrew, Sam and Fay deal with life after WWII, and the author wrote the book in such a way that we see each character s perspective.The upside to living in a small town is everyone helps out in times of need but there s also the downside that outsiders aren t always made to feel welcome Andrew s new wife, Josette, has to deal with this when she comes home with Andrew, but I love Josette s spunk and that she and Andrew s story has a happy ending.I enjoyed this book and the way the author let us see each character s perspective I like how each member of the family dealt with their problems and worried that Sam s chauvinistic views might cost him the love of his life Times were changing after WWII and women were entering the workforce which was a big adjustment.This is a wonderful historical fiction and a clean romance Thanks to

happiness in their lives as they recover One of the Larsen boys comes home married, but the other boy and the two girls are still searching for their happily ever afters A sweet historical romance full of family, friendship and love that historical romance readers are sure to enjoy.It took me a little bit to get into this story I was expecting to be following one story line and so it felt slightly fragmented when there were multiple points of view and several different romances five romances in total the Larsen children and one of their daughter s friends It was a different approach than I generally read, but after I got used to it and invested in this family it didn t bother me Their lives are so entwined that it would be hard to tell one of their stories without telling anyone else s I loved how close this family was and how involved they were in each other s lives I also loved the genuineness, down to earth feel of this family and their story Of course, it helped that I cam to love these characters as well The small town setting was another fun aspect of the story All the romances were lovely There was chemistry, friendship, the awkwardness of new love, second love, the sweetness of newlyweds, a little bickering, and the comfortable love of a long married couple Pretty much every stage was represented by one couple or another I also liked that the story wasn t all about romance It also showed the difficulties of those coming home from the war as well as those who had stayed to keep things moving while most of the men were gone One women wants to have a career while her fiance thinks she should be a traditional house wife There is also those who think its wrong for a woman to have helped the war effort as a spy or in the resistance effort I liked that it gave a fairly representative picture of the time and the little changes and effects the war had There were a few parts that really brought out my emotions.In the end, was it what I wished for I thoroughly enjoyed this story The characters were lovable and their happily ever afters well deserved.Content CleanSource I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, which did not require a
