This book starts with a yearly summer holiday with Andrew and his family while they visit with his grandparents (Papou and Yia Yia). But you’re just starting to turn the pages when you find yourself going back in time and learning about best friends, Alexei and Costa, and life in Greece. I learned so much about the time period when Mussolini declares war on Greece. These two young men were so willing to serve their country and support each other through time of war.
I had many tearful moments as I read through the story. I loved the twist at the end which had me gasping out loud. And I love when a book does that for me.
