In this supernatural drama, a woman’s husband is killed in World War II, which changes her life in unexpected ways.
The author injects this otherwise familiar tale with an unusual element of mysticism when, in the aftermath of his death, Eleanor and the kids get an unusual opportunity to find some measure of emotional closure. Over the course of this historical novel of wartime, the author intelligently captures the terrible challenges that face Eleanor before and after her husband’s death. – Kirkus excerpts
