    Confesso que esperava um pouco mais desse livro, n o sei se foi a tradu o brasileira que comeu algumas partes da hist ria, mas alguns acontecimentos acontecem muito r pido, apesar que com certa coes o Confesso que no in cio gostei muito do Hugh, adoro militares, mas para o fim do livro achei ele muito rude com a mocinha a Susanne que era uma tremenda chorona, inocente e florzinha Uma trama que poderia ter dado um belo de um livro, mas que acaba despontando.
