When I first started to read this book, I wasn't sure I'd like it, but the more I got into it, the more interested I got. By the time I finished it I wished it was longer. I followed Mary';s adventures which reminded me of mine.
There is a picture of my airbase tower on page 100...On page 196 there is a picture of Nuremberg. We were in a PW camp about two miles from there and witnessed many air-raids...both night and day.
Mary was also at Camp Lucky Strike, a tent city. We went there after we were liberated. We were the first to occupy the base. I thought that you might like to read it too.
The almost day to ay account of someone from small town America who was there in world War II. I you have never been an arm chair traveler, this is an excellent first trip

Dear Mrs. Gezzi,
Your book of mary's letters was just super. I've read it three times. Then again the WWII years is when I grew up in North Creek.
It brought back so many memories. I received a letter from George Surrency dated April 6th ....and he was killed on April 6. It was so sad
