Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » When Texas-born Gayle Hunnicutt was clearing-out the family home after her father's death and prior to her mother's moving into a 'care- home' she stumbled across a bundle of dusty letters written when her father had served for two years in the South Pacific, during World War Two. Gayle's mother was two-months pregnant when he left. Gayle was a lively little girl when he returned. The letters are full of the poignancy of forced separation, and Lloyd Hunnicutt's frustration at missing the earliest, most important, period of his only child's existence. They also describe his daily life on islands fringed by white sandy beaches, brilliant blue water and dark-green jungle - but also a miasma of heat, insects, rain, mud; boredom and loneliness. A spellbinding real-life story of two ordinary people faced - like many others - with an extraordinary situation which tested their patience and fidelity to the utmost - but never broke them.
