This is a good reminder of days gone by. Very good descriptions of the days before war and then how hard it was during it. I like your ending. Very good.

Your gentle writing skill just captured me in this story. It was as though I was reading a letter written to me by someone I knew...I was there and understood each emotion well.
Just love it. Exceptional story telling.

I love your writing this is the best I've enjoyed this week. Thanks!
Wonderful writing and presentation of the emotions of your MC. I loved the little extra touches such as dancing to the "Glenn Miller" band. Very well done!!!
This pulled me right in--I felt like I was invading someone's privacy or reading their mail. Really well done.

What a tender and romantic story of young love and what the men and women endured during this war torn time. Great writing--I, too, was right there in that cold room as your MC read and savored every word of that dear letter. Pass the kleenex.
