War is such a sad thing - the anger and hatred, the misery, the loss - but even during all of this, stories of love, of family and friends, of peace, can be found. This is a beautiful story of some of that peace, told through a letter from Janet's brother, who was a part of this unofficial truce. I must admitted that I had goosebumps and cried as this story was told, wishing that this kind of thing could still happen today. The author also provides an historical account in the back. The pictures by Wendy Edelson are beautiful and really add to the story.
