I Had Seen Castles Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Dante is seventeen when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, and he wants to fight for his country. Then he falls in love with Ginny Burton, who is against all war, and his beliefs are suddenly and unexpectedly questioned. But rather than be judged a traitor or a coward, he enlists. “Rylants story is heartbreaking in its honesty; her controlled, elegant prose lends poignancy to the storys emotional depth. A love story, a coming-of-age tale, a book with a passionate anti-war message, I Had Seen Castles is not to be missed.”--Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Just 17 when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, John Duane wants nothing more than to enlist. Then he falls in love with Ginny Burton, who is against all war. Fifty years later, John is haunted by memories of 1942.
