Publisher's Summary

First glimpsed in Tom Brokaw's landmark best seller, The Greatest Generation, the true-life love story of Daphne and Raymond Kelley went far deeper than Brokaw's feature could reveal.
Taking its title from a poem that newlywed Daphne sent her soldier husband during World War II, When You Come Home tells of their young love in the heartland at the brink of war, and of the crushing uncertainty and fear as they find themselves a world apart. And when the poem comes back to Daphne - blood-stained by Raymond's mortal wounds - When You Come Home shares the extraordinary event that restored the grieving young widow's faith in the transcendent power of love.

WHAT A STORY...

Such a wonderful true story of love, faith, and loss during WW2. Daphne and Raymond fell in love and married but then he went to war. Their beautiful love story is so eloquently written by Daphne's daughter, Nancy. I could not stop listening~I also did not want the recording to end. THE GREATEST GENERATION is a well deserved title to those who fought in the war as well as their loved ones who supported them from home. The ration stamps, stars in the windows, and all of the sacrifices that were made by the country to support the American soldiers was so inspiring. The narration by Tiffany Williams was fabulous. Very highly recommended.
