Heart Warming Nov 10, 2006
This book really hit home. It shows you what sacrafices were made to give all of us the Freedoms that we enjoy today in addition to being a beautifull love story. It brought tears to my eyes. Great Job Mr. Bonsall.
A wonderful book! Oct 2, 2006
I loved this book. My parents were also of this generation and dad in the Normandy Invasion, both from dysfunctional families. They built a long and happy marriage and gave us children a fine childhood. Today's generation can learn from this book. It's another great tribute to a the WWII generation.
THE TYPICAL WORLD WAR 2 STORY Sep 25, 2006
I found this book to be overly long and self appreciating in the fact that Bonsall portrays his mother and father as if they were the only people who served in WW2 and sacrificed anything at all for the US. It is a really good book if you enjoy reading about people who toot their own horns, and make a buck off the "patriotism theme". I cannot recommend.

What a beautiful story. Everyone should read it. It should be required reading in schools. It might give kids an appreciation for this wonderful nation and the freedoms we enjoy.
The story of GI Joe and Lillie will melt your heart. Feb 13, 2006
Never before has a book touched me the way this one has. Before I was finished reading I felt like part of the family. When reading their story you just fall in love with them, I laughed with them, and yes I cried like a baby too. The book also comes with a cd of the song GI Joe and Lillie and now that I have read the book the song seems more personal and even more beautiful than it was before. And to Joseph Bonsall, I thank you for sharing this wonderfull story of love and the struggles of an American soldier with the rest of us . JOE and LILLIE must be so very proud of you.
