As time marches on, WWII is becoming an historical era that novelists want to write about more often. Personally, I enjoy the time period because it reminds me of all the stories my grandmother told me when she lived through that era. I miss her and reading a book set during WWII reminds me of her. The photo to the left was taken around 1938 of my grandparents, Christine Watkins Hudson and Lee Thomas Hudson.
