Review: BROTHERS FAR FROM HOME by Jean Little

Back to Books recently read and reviewed Brothers Far From Home by Jean Little for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

A wonderful story that tells the story of life for those left on the home front after the two eldest boys of a large family go off to war.  The war itself is experienced in a roundabout way through letters home and the family’s reading of newspapers and listening to the radio.  Eliza occasionally pastes these letters and clippings into her diary.  During the story, more than the facts and details of the war are presented along with the feelings of the participants and, mostly, those left behind.

Read the full review.
