Review:

Next to Love is a story of love, war and loss written from the perspective of three young women, in small town America.  Beginning as their men are called to duty, the story extends thought the difficulties of raising children in uncertain times.  While some men lost their lives in WWII, many returned mutilated or mere shells of their former selves.  Entire families struggled as returning soldiers experienced frantic mood swings and plaguing nightmares.  But this is not just a story of fear and loss, but rather, it is a story of enduing friendships and perseverance of the human spirit when faced with great mental, physical and emotional adversity.
