Until We Meet is a heartfelt and well-rounded story of World War II. With amazing characters, historical detail and a sweet romance, Until We Meet has a strong plot that flows together seamlessly. I absolutely loved all of the characters. Friendship was definitely a theme throughout the story. Margaret, Gladys and Dottie lean on each other throughout their trials and triumphs and celebrate each other's strengths and differences. I loved Gladys' independent, forward thinking, adventurous spirit and ability to solve problems and advocate for women's rights, Dottie's perseverance, kindness and empathy and Margaret's giving nature, support and heart that she places into everything she does. Through these ladies we also see the important work that women did while the men were at war, taking jobs that they were previously banned from, making safety improvements in those positions and supporting the troops overseas in numerous ways. John, William and Tom have an equally important friendship that gets them through the toughest parts of training, battles, tragedies and ties them to the women in Brooklyn. The battle scenes were realistic without being overbearing showing the grittiness, camaraderie, hope and bravery of the men who fought. The letters were another wonderful part of the story, I enjoyed reading about their innermost feelings and seeing the relationship grow through their writing. Until We Meet is exactly the type of historical fiction that I love with brilliant writing, wonderful characters and a story that kept my interest the whole way through.
