Description

Praise for The Last Year of the War

"Meissner has created a quietly devastating story that shows how fear and hatred during World War II changed (and even ended) the lives of many innocent Americans."--Kirkus Reviews

"A heartbreaking, thought-provoking work of historical women's fiction."--Booklist

"Powerful and at times chillingly contemporary, and it reminds us why we read historical fiction in the first place."--Michelle Gable, New York Times bestselling author of A Paris Apartment

"A beautifully poignant tale, The Last Year of the War explores the complexities of love, friendship, and the fleeting truths of identity. With vividly drawn characters and ever-elegant prose, Meissner highlights a dark, often-overlooked piece of American history. This timely novel will stay with the reader long after its thoughtful, heartwarming conclusion."--Kristina McMorris, New York Times bestselling author of Sold on a Monday

"Highlighting a little-known story of World War II with heart-wrenching detail, this beautifully written novel will make you think about what it means to be American, as well as what--and who--determines our identity."--BookBub

"Vivid historical detail and elegant prose bolster this rewarding story of profound friendship, family, fear, and the pain that arose for American-born children of immigrant parents."--Publishers Weekly

"There's no shortage of books about World War II and internment camps coming out right now, given events in the news over the last year. Meissner's latest novel presents a more interesting, untold account than others."--Real Simple

"Gorgeously structured...this beautifully written fictional memoir, as cinematic as a real photo album, takes us to a time we could not know. It shows us the depth of friendship, the moments of courage, impossible love, crucial decisions, and the heartbreaking devastation that happens to the innocent collateral damage of a world war."--BookTrib

"...an unpredictable, can't-put-down novel."--Historical Novel Society
