They Call Him Marvin
They Called Him Marvin is a love story between 1st Lieutenant Dean & Connie Sherman, a young couple separated by war and the tragic circumstances they would face.
They Called Him Marvin blends facts from the war with a real love story. Realizing this was a common reality made me think about how many lives were devastated during WWII. Of course, I knew this, but reading the actual letters that Connie and Dean wrote to each other made it real.
Mixed amongst Dean’s life as a pilot are the letters written between him and his wife while he was away. They give the story a personal feel and an eye into the lives of one couple who lived the hardship of war and a baby who would never meet his father.
Although I enjoyed the storyline, I had a hard time sinking my teeth in. It is informative but in more of a textbook-like way. If you enjoy reading about history, this is probably a book for you.
Thank you to Love Books Tours, the author, & the publisher for providing this book for me to read and review.
