I read this book after enjoying Parnassus on Wheels. Same characters plus a mystery, right after World War II. And a sweet romantic side story but not sappy. I really enjoy how the author sometimes talks directly to the reading audience; mostly the characters reveal themselves through their dialog, but occasionally he comments directly to us. Delightful book.
