I’m a huge fan of Goodreads. It’s how I track the books I’ve read, follow my favorite authors and discover new (to me) books and authors. It’s free and easy to use.

I also appreciate readers who share their thoughts about War Bonds on my Goodreads page. Here’s the latest reader reviews.

Kathryn: 4 stars

First sentence: Boy Scouts stood at solemn attention.
Favorite quote/Love Lesson: The best thing we ever did was move away from our parents.
Each chapter in this book tells the story of a couple who met and married in the 1940s and the husbands who went off to war. From blind dates to whirlwind romances to long separations this book has it all. I loved the pictures of when the couples were young and at the end of each chapter was a picture of how they look now. The author is coming to my library later this month and I so look forward to meeting her.

Just as it promises, this book is a varied collection of love stories.
it’s both a sweet and interesting snapshot of another time.

I actually enjoyed this book immensely, higher than I rated it for others. Perhaps I’m too presumptuous about another’s reading taste, I just don’t want to mislead. War Bonds is a collection of sweet stories about real people who survived the Depression and World War II, and found indelible romance at the same time. The featured couples averaged well over 60 years of marriage, and the examples they displayed, the lessons they lived define the Greatest Generation at its zenith.

The author, Cindy Hval, doesn’t overwhelm with details or heroics, but effectively reveals ordinary people who survived, who conquered, during extraordinary times. Whether I rate it four stars or five, it is worthy of your time to read, as well as a treasure to be passed on to younger generations.
Jessica 4 stars
A sweet book about WWII veterans and their spouses – looks similar to Larry Kings Love Stories of World War II. Each chapter is only 4-6 pages telling how each couple met and a bit about their lives.
