Firefly - Whitney Hamilton Nothing expresses my feelings on this book better than Vic's review.

Some parts of the book dealing with the war and other acts of violence may be hard to read because of the graphic descriptions. But it is this 'realism' that elevates the book to a level above the usual 'women disguised as men' lesfic stories. Although the 'war years' take up roughly half of the book (and the women don't meet until after), it is still worth reading through as Henry and Virginia are both creatures of the war. The second half of the book, which is just as long as a full lesfic novel, explores the improbable romance. As Vic said, you need to slow down and savor the emotions generated by the author's words.

My only complaint is that it all ends too soon.
