The next meeting of the romance Literature club will be held on April 17. We will be discussing Sentimental Journey a novel of the life of a young woman's experiences on the home front during World War II. What impactdoes war have on those left behind? When the war is over, how do young women return to life as it was before? Is it possible to find new challenges? How does a woman deal with the losses war inevitably brings? Below is a short summary of Sentimental Journey. Join us for a discussion of the impact of war on life and love. Sentimental Journey can be found on bookshare.org.
