You know, it was a favorite in our house also, but and probably is stilled liked by many readers, it just felt too dated to me this time. I'm glad you bring reviews out of the archives like things. It reminds me of the ones I haven't read or introduces me to some I've missed. I think I missed this one. Actually, this is old, but has been in steadily since , but for me the definition I used in Form the Archives are the dates up to about 10 years after the war ended because so many effects of the war lingered that long in people's lives. I love to read them, too.
