To know, Grab your copy as the book comes out on the 19th of March. 🍁🍁🍁 The book has a really binding beginning and there were times when I felt tears building up in my eyes. So many paragraphs will knock you and you will start doubting just like Clint. Also if you’re anticipating that it has some facts about the world war then it’s not about that. It a struggle story of a family during War times.
It has been written in a reasonable manner for anyone to read. Overall I would say a story that will immerse you well.
