Very good. Dust Cover Missing. Book has appearance of only minimal use. All pages are undamaged with no significant creases or tears. With pride from Motor City. All books guaranteed. Best Service, Best Prices.
Even though it is a sequel, a person could fully enjoy this book without ever reading A Separate Peace, the book that came before it. The setting and themes are the only things that carry over.
The story takes place at Devon, an all-boys prep school in New England, post WWII. One of the main characters is a man who fought in the war and returned to teach at his alma matter. His perspectives of life after the war as a soldier and POW are juxtaposed with those of the boys who never fought.
It addresses what makes a hero, what makes a villain, and the concept of a war to end all wars. It?s very good, I recommend it.
