Summary

Babe, Grace, and Millie have been best friends since their first day at their small town’s only kindergarten. Despite their differences, they’ve played together, grown up together, and shared each other’s secrets. And when World War Two becomes a reality for America also, the girls begin a new phase of their lives together - each quickly marries her first true love.

With the men away, life is difficult for these newly married women. But when no fewer than 16 telegrams arrive on a single morning in 1944 - all bearing news of the worst kind from the War Department - the girls know that nothing will ever be the same again.

An OK story, but not much depth...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Give the characters more depth, I felt I was listening to a summary of their lives... I wanted to know more...
