This is a story about the perils of war and life in general. The sweet heartbreaking reality of war and the sweet heartbreaking reality of life. For the Love of Laura Beth is a story about effects of war on the young men and their families in the 1950’s, which is still pretty relevant to today. It’s also about family. Important then. Important now. This is a heartbreaking story about love and loss; hope and survival. This story is too real.
“You’re not the first and won’t be the last to feel forsaken.”
This story involves a twist that wasn’t expected, turning this story from a general heartbreak to an ugly cry heartbreak. But the power of love is there to pull us through.
“I was so afraid of the pain, but I’ll miss all the joy.”
This story was a slow Sunday afternoon type of read and that’s why the twist hits so hard. Great, simple caring characters.
I recommend a tissue box while reading this great story.
