"You know, Big Brother, the only reason I wanted to learn to fly those planes, was so I could fly escort for you."

"Like every young married couple, Harry and Eva Powell had no idea what the future would hold when they pledged to love and honor each other in 1919. They began their family, which eventually grew into seven children. When the nation called their sons to war, Harry and Eva endured without complaint the agony of waiting for their safe return."

Excerpt from review by Philip Lee Williams, author of A Distant Flame
"Four Stars in the Window is the deeply moving story of four brothers who served their country during World War II, but it is also the larger story of a country's sacrifice and courage. . . . No one can read this book without believing--and knowing--that the four Powell brothers and their family were indeed part of 'the greatest generation'."
