Review: During World War II, Ellie is certain that her beloved brother, Jimmy's draft deferment will keep him safe. When Jimmy is inevitably called to duty overseas, Ellie is certain that he will be home in time for Christmas just as he promised. But Ellie learns that some promises go unanswered, no matter the faith and love behind them. Filled with period details and warmth, this would be a good addition to any collection.
