Review: Breezy, heartfelt, and meaningful!
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel. Two friends, Anne and Kitty, sign up as nurses and leave behind their lives of luxury and convention in Seattle for Tahiti. There, they face romance and heartbreak as WWII moves closer. Anne Calloway, the main character, has left her fiancee behind, awaiting the wedding, yet finds herself intrigued by Westry, a soldier. Together, they fix up an old bungalow with a mysterious past and a beautiful painting which may or may not be by a certain French artist who visited Polynesia.
