Book Description: Television producer Ava Ellington cannot refuse her grandfather's last wish--that she accompany him to Europe on a tour of World War II battle sites. Ava has little interest in historical battles, but this may be her last chance to break down the barriers that have grown up between them, and she sets off, camera in hand, ready to record and report on their journey. She and Grandpa Jack are greeted in Paris by Paul, her grandpa's best friend, and his grandson Dennis. The Dennis who just happens to be Ava's first love. History comes alive as the group travels across Europe--from the romantic sights of Paris to the bleak battlefields of Belgium to the Austrian labor camp these men liberated so many years before--and Ava sees a side of her grandfather she's never known before. As he shares his memories of those bitter days on the battlefield, she begins to understand how his experiences in the war made him the man he is today. Throughout the journey, Ava and Dennis are drawn together in ways neither of them expected. Can their memories of the past lead to a bright new future?

My Thoughts: This was a sentimental journey and I found myself completely absorbed in it. Ava is a producer of Seattle's top morning show and she knows that if she doesn't come up with something good for the show she may not have a job. When the opportunity arises that she could travel with her Grandfather Jack back to Europe where he was during WWII she is leery because they had a falling out at Thanksgiving over her fiance. Ava decides to go and tape her grandfather along the way as he sees where he was as a young solider now as an older man. Ava learns about her grandfather in a way she never would had she not gone. She also learns about herself. I highly recommend this book!
