Review: A WORLD AWAY by Stewart O’Nan

Wanda from A Season to Read read A World Away by Stewart O’Nan for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from her review:

If only the characters had been more engaging, perhaps then I wouldn’t have resented the fact that Stuart O’Nan managed to keep me just interested enough that I felt I had to finish.
