With Every Letter

As Lt. Mellie Blake begins her flight training program, she is coerced into joining a moral-building letter writing program to soldiers overseas. The only thing that makes her feel better about it is knowing that her identity (and his) will be kept secret. Stationed in North Africa, Lt. Tom MacGilliver is also glad that his correspondence will give him a false identity. Over time, as the two write to each other, they get to know almost everything about each other. Then, they are both transferred to Algeria, where they will finally meet.
VERDICT This heartwarming, richly detailed Word War II historical should appeal to fans of Judith Pella.
