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.

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.

Poignant love story

I thoroughly enjoyed the Audible version. Heart wrenching and very sweet love story. Shows classic Christianity lived out in the midst of tragedies. I enjoyed reading this book. What brave and strong people were those WWII war brides and their husbands! They were a different class of people than what we have now in today’s society. I don’t think our country could endure such losses today because we have no foundation in Jesus Christ and no hope as a nation since we have forsaken the faith of our fathers. What an inexpressible loss these people would feel, knowing they gave their lives for a country that is no more!! “Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry”
