A 1943 novel that's still a good read :)

I just finished that a couple days ago! It was such an amazing book. I hated that it had to end.

I remember my dad talking about this book years & years ago. My DD recently read it & keeps asking me if I've read it yet. Sounds like one I need to pick up.

I read that one when I was a kid. I think it's time to pick it up again!
