To be honest, I did not know about John Downey, Jr. until I read this book. It’s utterly heartbreaking that a young man sacrificed so many years of his wife in order to serve his country. The author did an incredible job for all of us can know the story of John. John was imprisoned for twenty-one years in China. It is time we all know his name and his story. A must-read for anyone wanting to know more about U.S. history.

Thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for sending me an ARC in exchange of an honest review of the book received.

This was an excellent book. I had heard of this man, but I didn't know much about him or his ordeal. This author took the trouble to ensure I knew what happened and why.
