Wayfaring Stranger by James Lee Burke

My rating: 4.9

Where to start. This is about the life of Weldon Holland.  Yes, he happens to meet Bonnie & Clyde when he is a teenager but that was only a very small portion of this book.  This richly told tale is about Weldon surviving the Battle of the Bulge, saving the lives of his Sergeant Hershel Pine and his future wife Rosita and how their lives unfold from there.

This epic novel is about American history, love and a thriller all wrapped up in to one.  For me, it also had a feel of a Western.  Brilliant writer.
