Virginia's War

I enjoyed French Letters for it’s unique take on WWII. Here we see the war and rationing and evasion of rationing through the eyes and actions of the adults and youngsters of small town USA. The story is well written and certainly holds the reader’s attention. I came to care about the characters, liked some, loathed others and wanted to know what would happen to all of them as the action played out. Kudos to the author for that.

The ending, while fitting, was rather abrupt. All in all, a good read.
