Celia is in love with her three best friends. She knows what her mother will say so she runs away. WWI starts and all the men go off to war. Her fiancé is killed and her three best friends come back wounded. She now has the chance to start over again with them. Will she have the courage?
I enjoyed this book. Celia is like most of us. She lets others define how she is to live her life. Her boys need her and she needs to overlook the disapproval of her mother. I liked the naturalness of the relationship between her, Robert, Patrick, and Freddie. I could understand her decision.
I appreciate that the short story, The Satisfaction of Celia Flynn, was included. I liked knowing what happened down the road with them.
