My 5 Star Review

What an unexpected ending! But I will not disclose this here{smile}
Mystery, Suspense and Romance was build in this Historical story while the Red Box took center stage. The author never allowing you to its locked up secrets. My heart was touched by the characters Glen and Bonnie. Two people coming together to share a life believing in the happy ever after. But then came the unexpected twist.
I never seen it coming at the beginning and I must admit I felt cheated in a way. In a good way {smile} Not real words to describe the feelings towards Bonnie that did everything to survive. Maybe it was not the best way but for her it was the only way out of a senseless existence. Leaving her parents house after enduring a long and stretched out abusive family life.
At the beginning I really did not like the selfish behavior of this young woman where every thing had to revolve around her but once she met the GI Glen Taggard she became human. A woman who I admired. Who for the first time in her grown up years was honest giving her heart to this old soldier.
The back ground plot of the end of the Second World War as soldiers return to their loved ones. Where we met Charlie and Amy and a sweet young love that tugged at Glen's heart yearning for something similar once he returned.
Glen was a real gentleman, perfect and romantic that carried her on his hands but when he discovered her deceit he was broken and he had to do the right thing. It devastated him. Because two small miraculous would be damaged in the long run and his marriage a scam. But he had to clean the slate. At the end as protector of his family he had to do the right thing and put Bonnie away. Yes in prison!
But his love towards this woman he thought he knew shined threw and I can admire a man like that. Willing to do what ever it takes to rescue his family.
The rest of the cast really helped to build the plot line. Aunt Irene and Uncle Dan, Luthur, Christine and Baby Girl. Each strong in their own right to bring a thought provoking and suspense filled story.
