About the Book:
35-year-old Ava Andrews' dream job is interrupted by an unusual request--fulfill her 84-year-old grandfather's last wish by joining him on a battle site tour of Europe. Ava is sure her boss will refuse her request. But, instead, he gives her a directive of his own--to videotape the tour and send it back as mini-segments for the show she produces.
As if juggling these two things isn't hard enough, Ava is soon surprised again ... twice. First, Ava and Grandpa Jack arrive in Europe, only to discover the tour is cancelled. Unwilling to let down her grandfather or her boss, Ava and Grandpa Jack head out on their own. Then, while they're on their way, the pair soon meet up with Paul, her grandpa's best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The same Dennis who just happens to be Ava's first love.
Before she knows it, Ava and Dennis are swept down memory lane as they visit the sites that are discussed in the history books. And even though Ava's videotaping old soldiers, she can see their youth, their hopes and fears, and their pride in their eyes. Soon Ava learns the trip isn't just for them ... it's for her too--especially for her heart.
I absolutely fell in love with this book. To say it was amazing is simply just an understatement! The writing touched every nerve of my brain. This book had it all, torn family, long lost love, unresolved history and so much more! The research that had to go into this book is just incredible. The history of WW2 is almost gone with so many of our troops aging and dying that this book is perfect as a lasting tribute to those who served during that time. Even if you don't like historical books, I'd suggest you pick this up and give it a try..it's so much more than history, and Ms. Goyer does a wonderful job of weaving past with present and making it seem so real. And knowing that this is based on a true life story...well... pick it up and read it already and I dare you not to come away with a tear in your eye and a smile on your face!
