Talk about Sentimental Journey (Reader's Choice)

A very sweet, clean WWII era romance. It follows the Wilson ladies and their men fighting overseas. An interesting glimpse into the 1940's and life during the war. I would have loved an epilogue a little further into the future with updates on these couples!
What an absorbing story about the war, told from the viewpoint of the women left behind. These were women who tried to carry on with jobs and family, while watching for letters that were often far between. They lived through discouraging days and sleepless nights, worrying about their men who were fighting, and above all, dreading receiving a telegram beginning with the words “We regret to inform you…..”
This story centers on Catherine and her family, and the way they deal with wartime. When her father voluntarily enlists, it leaves Catherine, her mom and her younger sister alone. They face some tough challenges, but also have some lovely surprises.
For those of us who are too young to have lived in this period, this story is engrossing and hard to put down. Excellent historical story, with very appealing characters.

I LOVED this book. I just purchased it today, after reading the few pages that each book lets you read. When I started to read - I had to read right through to the end!!! I saw the whole movie in my head as I read the book. Seeing a movie when I read is my highest recommendation for any author. I was totally immersed in the book, okay? Again, I LOVED this book!!! Catherine and Johnny is an awesome love story placed in a time where the world was literally turned upside down.

I was impressed with the feeling of being back in 1943 to 1945. No, I don't remember that time, as I was born in September of 1943. However, I remember some of the stories my mother told about that time during World War II. Yes, I saw Ms. Bretton make her mistake about White Christmas, so what. I learned to sing White Christmas before the movie of the same name came out, because of Holiday Inn.

The rest of the story was as accurate as could be without living during that time. I was completely moved by Catherine's struggle to not give up her job when her father came home. This struggle was going throughout the US, after World War II. No, the struggle wasn't in every household but it was going on in a lot of them. I remember the housing shortage before my parents bought their first home in December 1950. After the war, we lived in the "dumps" where there had been housing for military personnel in Los Angeles. The housing was on the way to the city dump is why they were called that. Long, long ago memory.

I highly recommend that anyone who wants a good romance - DO buy this book. I also can't wait until I buy the next story about Nancy and Gerry.
What a wonderful story by Barbara Bretton, one of the best! This book will pull you into the lives of the characters. There is Dot and Tom, parents of Catherine and Nancy. Catherine is going to marry Douglas when he returns from war. The war is going on between United States, Germany and Japan. Tom is going to leave the family and enlist even though Dot does not want him to leave her or the girls. The family goes to a banquet the day before Tom leaves and they meet Johnny who will be leaving with Tom. Catherine does ask Johnny to protect her father while they are away. The next day news comes that Douglas died at war, Catherine is heart broken and Tom hates leaving his daughter after the news yet he has to go. Catherine is taking over the plant that her father owns and writes letters to her father and Johnny. Nancy is writing to a guy named Gerry who is fighting the Vietnamese. Of course Dot is sending letters to her husband Tom. There are months when they do not receive any mail and all they can do is pray for their safe return and the war to be over. Then on Christmas eve Catherine is awakened by a knock on the door, when she opens the door she sees Johnny who is unconscious, she gets him inside and calls the Doctor. Johnny has shrapnel in his chest, infection in his arm and a high fever. The doctor gives directions to Catherine on how to tend to Johnny. When Dot and Nancy come back home they are shocked to see Johnny and they go about trending to him. They locate a letter in Johnny's pocket, it is from Tom and they are elated to find out that he is alive and Johnny saved his life. This is such as great read, you will have to read the book to find out if Tom returns back home, will Johnny pull through, will Nancy meet her pen pal, Gerry, that she has been writing for 2 years, will Catherine find love after losing Douglas? This is A Must read!
I really wanted to like this book since it was set during WWII, but it didn't take long for me to question how much research the author had done. On page 15 of the 1st chapter, Catherine (main character) writes to her boyfriend that she has seen "White Christmas" three times. If the author had done even a brief search she would have known that movie was not released until 1954, eleven years after the story in this book was taking place. I hate when writers are sloppy with facts, even in a fiction story.
I lived in Duluth Mn. during the war. We lived near a shipyard so of course we had black out curtains and Air Raids. I remember scrimping on EVERYTHING!! Fortunately the foster mom was able to make anything from scratch.
As to the writing, I felt it was drawn out. I skimmed over many pages. I have read this author quite a few times , so this will not deter me from other books.
As most of us have learned when men come back from the war ,they are scarred in some way or other. It takes deep understanding and caring to help them heal. Some never do.
