I cried for these little people. They were robbed of their chance at life before it ever really got started. Bad enough that they were killed, but before that, they were left in the French camp without their parents. Some of these kids were toddlers, left there with no one to comfort them and no understanding of what was happening. The least we can do is to know their story and remember them. I suppose the author was trying to connect the two time Shall We Fight It Out Shirt, but I would have liked to have more information about the families of children.

This book had a major impact on me, and when I first finished it I thought it was an easy 4 stars, despite some significant weaknesses in characterization and what felt like author manipulation. But in the cold light of morning, those things are bothering me more. The characters, especially the present-day ones, are mostly stereotypes: the suave, cheating French husband, the wise-beyond-her-years daughter, the over-eager nurse at an abortion facility, people hiding old secrets with a stiff upper lip. It’s pretty well written, but they’re still thin. It’s also an emotionally manipulative book, from Shall We Fight It Out Shirt life. I felt like the author was too obvious in pushing the reader to feel in certain ways.
