    This book had been on my to read list for a long time, but due to some preconceived notions about historical fiction, I had never gotten to it. Once I was through the first chapter I was hooked. The two central characters Andy and Sammy, were intelligent, and strong- well developed individuals whose lives I was wholeheartedly interested in. I found myself telling friends and family members to shut up, so I could dive into this novel. I refused to explain my gasps and angry sighs, leaving them confused and rather uncomfortable. The tough female leads inspired me, the plot fascinated me, and the relevance even 50 plus years later enlightened me. Read this book!
