Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

I loved this book.  It is one of those that was indeed bittersweet.  I felt like crying through much of it.  I suppose it was the shame of remembering a time that was not our finest hour; the sadness that I feel when I think of all war and how it tears families apart; how hard it is for young men to grow up; and how cruel kids can be to one another.  This beautifully written story was a love story, told with honor and intrigue.  Buoyed with a smokey jazz undercurrent that made it even richer.  I loved it!  If you missed book cub, here's the clip Sue showed us
