Set in Chicago during World War II, three Irish Catholic sisters--Kitty, Louise, and Tish Heaney, say good-bye to their boyfriends at Union Station as they head off to war. Over the next three years, the sisters learn what it means to sacrifice during wartime. Kitty takes on an exhausting job at Douglas Aircraft; Louise, deeply in love with her boyfriend, keeps her worries to herself while writing him upbeat letters full of the news of home; and Trish spends her weekends at USO dances, promising to write to every soldier she meets.

This really made me think what it would have been like back in the day. Great detail about the war and it's toll on families. But the ending was kind of weird. Why Kitty didn't marry the man she loved and her sisters kept taking her boyfriends and marrying them I'll never know. Just proves you shouldn't wait so long to tell someone you want to be with them only.

At first I thought this audio book was a sappy love story taking place during WWII but as the audio book progressed I really enjoyed it. In the shadow of war, this book gives a little peek into how much people gave up and struggled, in order to support their boys at war. Families and communities went on for better or for worse and the things we take for granted now, were treasured items then.
In the end, you become grateful that you don't have to live off of some of the meals these families had to endure and appreciate the things you have no matter how much or how little.
