The Gift of the Inn
by Golden Keyes Parsons
Christmas Eve, 1944

“Some of my men will come home in a body bag. So, I don’t want to hear it. This topic is no longer up for discussion.” Quenton’s tone reflected his annoyance at the too-familiar argument.
This book is amazing! I am already to chapter 21 and I am having a very hard time putting it down. I can tell that this book will stick with me long after I finish reading. The characters are stellar, the situations are heart-wrenching, and the themes are so poignant. This book has been a roller coaster ride for my emotions: I’ve teared up several times, been angry and frustrated, and I’m currently scared for one character — an American soldier who has fallen behind enemy lines in Germany. This book has not had a dull moment yet.
