Leah Jones has no idea who she is.
Other than a few faint memories, this orphan has no clue about her family. But she is determined to find her two sisters--one of the few things she does remember--all the same. And her journey begins at the library for soldiers. A library where Clay Paxton just also happens to frequent (you knew it was coming, didn't you?).
And a library where everything about Leah is about to be attacked.
It's rare to find an orphan's perspective in adult books. (Generally, they seem to show up in young adult books more.) So Leah's perspective was very interesting, especially how she views life without drama and with uncommon maturity. (And poetry, of course!)
I mentioned above that everything about Leah is about to be attacked. While I used it more of a metaphor, she really is physically attacked early on in the book, which results in it having more mature content than the first two had.
Clay's dream that he believes shows him how he will die was a little . . . unusual? I know that sounds super weird, but it does make sense at the end, I promise. Still, following the final Paxton brother's journey through D-day and towards forgiveness didn't disappoint.
