    1. Ann Marie began her professional career in television journalism and then attended law school After practicing as a trial litigation attorney, she turned to editing.

    2. I won this on First Reads - thank you et alAn amazing book! A very intimate glimpse into one family and the Korean War. I can imagine the joy little 4 year old Ann Hughes felt every time she received a letter from her father. Very ingenious way of communicating with a child missing her daddy, unable to grasp the seriousness of war or the peril her father faced daily. I'm sure Dr. Hughes felt comfort, closeness as well as a cathartic feeling with each letter he penned. Dr. Hughes wrote his daugh [...]

    3. What a cute way to travel back to the Korean War! The Letters are from Captain Hughes to his 4 year old daughter, Ann. There are some parts that are a little awkward to read, like when Captain Hughes is scolding Ann for her potty-training accidents. But overall it is an educational and enjoyable journey into history.

    4. /*disclaimer: first reads*/I liked the pictures and the letters (and the funny little biography at the end).Imagination really helps while reading this book. Captain John F. Hughes is writing to Ann, who is a little girl. Sometimes, he sends her comical illustrations of the tougher parts to soldiering: the mud, the sore feet, and the dangers. Sometimes, he alludes to reports from his wife (and sometimes pokes fun at her as well). I imagined him choosing to be cheerful in his letters, even while [...]

    5. This was a really enjoyable, sweet book. I read it in one sitting. It is a large hardcover book, around 175 pages, containing letters to a little girl named Ann from her father who was overseas in the Korean war. Scattered among the letters are different facts that correspond to the dates of the letters as well as a few photos. The letters are charming. Most are very short, with a line or two accompanied with a hand-drawn picture. I didn't intend to read it all in one sitting, but I quickly beca [...]

    6. Four-year-old Ann was the recipient of the illustrated letters her father, Captain John Hughes, sent to her depicting his everyday life as a soldier in the Korean War and commenting about her life back home.I picked up this book because I was eager to learn more about the Korean War, especially since my father-in-law was captured at the beginning of the war and was a prisoner of war for three years. I learned many facts from the letters themselves and from the researched entries which the author [...]

    7. This book is exquisite! As I read, my emotions bounced between heart-warmth and heartbreak. The letters and pictures to Ann were comical and showed the intense love and devotion her father had to her. With help from the historical pieces that the editor interwove, I felt a connection to the family and a better understanding of the Korean War. This amazing book is one that I will continue to treasure.(I received this book for free through First Reads.)

    8. A lovely book containing letters written from a father to his four year old daughter while he was stationed in Korea from 1950-1951. They are often quick little notes with humorous drawings. The editor also includes little blurbs to add historical context and there are also some photographs. It is a very quick and satisfying read.

    9. What a great book. I loved the pictures and love that was within the letters. Tiny bits of Korean War history intertwined with family history!

    10. Read for personal research - found this book's contents helpful and inspiring.A good book for the researcher and enthusiast.
