Reviews - What do customers think about Canteen Dreams (HEARTSONG PRESENTS - HISTORICAL)?

Great book!  Jul 9, 2008
This is one of the best historical romances I've read this year! There's something about the World War 2 era that is very poignant for me, maybe because my parents and grandparents were living in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was bombed.

The sadness associated with the soldiers who stop at the canteen and the emotions of losing loved ones made this book really stand out for me. I teared up quite a bit (although I should post a disclaimer that I tend to cry at movies and commercials all the time).

This book really brought the time period alive for me. The atmosphere of "days gone by" was beautifully drawn like a good watercolor painting.

I will go out on a limb and say this book reminded me of my favorite Grace Livingston Hill romances, which showcase a simpler time, strong faith, and lots of conflict that's always resolved by God's grace. GLH's books are typically set earlier (WW1), but the mood of Canteen Dreams seemed very similar to me.

There were a few scenes that I didn't quite understand the characters' actions and motivations, but they're in the second half of the book, so I won't spoil anything for you.

The writer's voice is fresh and it totally pops. I loved the dialogue and the way the story flowed from scene to scene. I can honestly say this is one of the best books I've read this month.

The story is appropriate for junior high school girls, although the 1941 time period might confuse them if they're not familiar with their history. This was a very entertaining book!
