Professional reviews

"By the outbreak of WWII, two young African-American women are ready to leave the segregated South, the constraints of a small black community, and troubled childhoods. As members of the Women's Army Corps, they travel to Europe, where Myraleen meets her life partner and Lilian falls in love with a German prisoner of war. The narrators give excellent performances in this audiobook. They present a plethora of characters who speak an array of black Southern accents; the two main characters are portrayed from elementary school to old age. This novel has truly been enhanced by its transformation to audio. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
