Teaching and living in the Binghamton area really brought this book to life for me. You don't have to live here to enjoy this book, it really gives you a sense of what the home front was like in WWII

A great read! It brought back memories of my youth and that difficult period in our history when "all the men were gone". I will buy the book.
