It dropped a star because, well, nothing much happens. Women missing their men who've gone to war. Their letters. Letters from the front, which can't say much because of restrictions placed on soldiers and the threat of censorship or outright destruction of the letters if they're found to reveal to much ("Loose lips sink ships" was the saying).
I enjoyed descriptions of Daisy's volunteer work as a letter-writer at the hospital where soldiers unable to write dictated letters home to her.
Instead of a thinly-veiled plot, based on facts and real correspondence, I would have preferred a more full-blown novel. I wanted more of the other women who worked at the hospital, more of the wounded who came through, more of Peter Rowe, the one soldier we learned something about. I wanted a story -- conflict and drama, something that pushed me to turn the pages more than just "Gee, I wonder if Gilbert will make it home to Daisy okay."
