War Comes to Alaska
Who know that WWII was so close to mainland USA? This fictional account of the secretive battle to keep the Japanese from escalating the front to the USA is told from the perspective of a journalist caught behind enemy lines and his wife who searches for him. John Easley, after his plane is shot down, fights to stay alive on a remote Aleutian Island, and his wife travels to Alaska on a USO trip to find him. The writing is crisp, evocative and succinct - no wasted words here. The writer describes loneliness with such powerful images, the book was hard to put down. Alice, Easley's wife, is an amazing, strong and dedicated woman who fights protocol, her mixed feelings and the US Air Force to travel to Alaska to look for her husband. I am not so sure I enjoyed the last couple of chapters as much as the rest of the book, but the book and its characters stayed with me long after I finished it.
