I do not know what I loved the most about this book. I am not usually too keen on "surviving the plane crash" story simply because it often serves as an artificial plot device to start a love story, but here it had just been so flawless IMO. Everything made sense - David and Rick turned out to be unexpectedly complex, the story just moved slowly and at the same time did not drag. The serving in the military and getting out theme was given not unexpected but not very often looked at in romances angle. Connection with second world war made so much sense that I was not even irritated at the story within the story - something that I usually dislike, but here I loved it. I thought ending was perfect too.
