Very good WWII story, a little different than some of the others. Two nurses stories, one in France, the other at a JapanesePOW camp in Manila. For fans of THE NIGHTINGALE.

The Palazzini Cab Company & Western Union Telegraph Office, owned and operated by Dominic Palazzini and his three sons, is flourishing: business is good, they're surrounded by sympathetic wives and daughters-in-law, with grandchildren on the way. But a decades-long feud that split Dominic and his brother Mike and their once-close families sets the stage for a re-match.

A little travel writing, memoir, literary non-fiction, this is a delight to read! Makes a great gift as well!
Very nice novel about a woman recalling her life over the years, walking through New York City. She is now in her nineties. Based on a true story. Very interesting!
Loved this book! Historical Fiction that takes place in Russia. Atmospheric, wonderful characters, a great sense of place. Really well done!
