Benjamin Mason's desire is to be a poet, a calling that his wealthy attorney father opposes. Steven Darby's family is dirt-poor, and he's working only to make money for school. His dream is to travel all over the world after the war. The story reveals much of their character through their nightly conversations and their thoughts. A climactic event involving a poem that Darby is trying to write brings things to a head and puts the German at risk of his life.
It's an interesting slice of life story about a couple of months in the lives of four people with very different backgrounds and histories. The story succeeded in making me curious about the characters' futures. Did Mason and Darby finish school, or did they get drafted and sent to fight? What happened to Professor Harlan in both his shaky personal life and his professional career? And was the German Torben repatriated after the war, and did his family survive?
The story plays out beautifully under Fiore’s deft hand. His character development is skillful, and dialogue a treat. His characters silences speak as loudly as their words.
