      "I love romance novels and was thinking it would be interesting to read some novels set in World War II. I was hoping to find something that's been highly rated. I'm not sure what to think of this book. It has an interesting plot, and is highly reviewed but only by 4 individuals. I will probably look at some more options and see if I can find something that has a few more reviews to consider."

      "Although, Flynn nails it with Darkest Before Dawn, it is not a book that I would recommend as a romance set during WW2. This book gives a detailed account of hardships faced by an average working class English family before, during and after the war, including dealing with the tragic loss of the loss of their husband/father."

      "The American Lieutenant was an enjoyable read. It is a well written bittersweet novel with a great plot and solid character development. The characters are genuine and likable, and the conflicts between them are believable. James, the British officer who is interested in Sophia helps to drive the story and adds tension and depth. Even the minor characters add flavor."
