March 19, 2015
A true 5 teacup+ read! A books that change your life nominee... Wildman strikes a perfect balance with Romance and History lovers by including her research story alongside that of Valy's creating the ever desired nonfiction work reading like fiction. Through a synergistic serendipity of the research community and her own, Wildman is able to bring the reader on the journey from Yours, Valy- at the close of a letter toward Valy- the loved one left behind to Valy- whose life should be important to every person on the planet. Perhaps being so involved does not allow Wildman to recognize she even answers the question about what the next generation or generations should be told in the future about WWII both leading up to and after the end of the European Theatre on both sides of the Atlantic. Those who read this remarkable work may soon recognize the perfect answer lies in the words you place in your book Ms.Wildman. Thank you for the 2014 book that changed my life. If there is only one book you read this year, this is it.
