Description

Spoiler Alert! (highlight to read)
Maryland, 1975. Sam has leaped into a psychiatrist at Bethesda Naval Hospital. A newly released POW just off the plane from Vietnam - a Lieutenant John Doe - has been admitted for psychiatric evaluation.
But when Sam walks into Doe's room for the first time, he realizes this soldier has a name to go with his face: Lieutenant Al Calavicci.
Now Sam must think fast, because some unhappy Pentagon officials have questions for Al. Questions about his imprisonment, his captors, and his reported treason against the United States of America.::

I got this book when I was a teenager. I was totally hooked within the first few pages. Totally loved it. I was crying in parts when Al got upset. The dispair Sam felt was so touching. If you haven't read this book, you've totall missed out.

Ditto. I got another copy at the convention, and I really need to pull it out of my stash of convention loot and read it again.

This is the best one of the ten I've read so far. Very moving in a lot of ways. She's a great writer. Well done, interesting story line, good understanding of the characters.

I really enjoyed this one. I really felt for Al when he was reliving his experiences as a P.O.W., I was picturing Dean Stockwell doing "M.I.A.-level" acting...

I also liked how we got some closure about what happened to Donna's father. I wonder why he changed his name?

This novel also did a great job dealing with the events post The Leap Home Part 2, and explained how Al's timeline changed from being repatriated in 1973 originally to 1975 in the revised timeline. I am also glad that they went through the story to make sure that Maggie Dawson was credited with her much-deserved Pulitzer prize.

An awesome novel!
