    I needed to read this and enjoyed it very much I m a bit preoccupied with death and mourning, having lost my oldest son on September 3, 2011 He would have been 29 on November 15 so I am having a difficult time right now.That aside, this is well written and engaging I got a first person perspective of what it was like to be a WWII war bride and, subsequently, war widow.

    As a reviewer on another site has said You d have to have a heart of solid granite not to be affected by this true story Well, just call me Stony then, because although I was moved at the end, I really didn t feel the characters in the way that perhaps others have The story has been written in the third person focusing on the young Daphne as she meets and falls in love with Raymond, thus the scene is set for the romance and tragedy that is to follow.I am really interested in stories set during w [...]

    Admittedly, when I started reading this story I didn t think I would finish At times the writing had me wanting to bang my head on the wall There were moments I would have to go back, during dialogue, to figure out who was speaking However, as time passed the story took on a life of its own I ve decided this deserves a 4.5 star rating.Though the writing itself was not perfect, the account moved me deeply You d have to have a heart of solid granite not to be affected by this true story As you rea [...]

    It s a biography that reads like a novel, almost too much like a novel to make a good biography It s full of dialog and inner thoughts There are also many, many details Not really details that add to the biography, but make it read like a novel The majority of it reads like any dime a dozen love story Lots of the sweet nothings are written as if they could be remembered verbatim.Then there is the weird supernatural twist It s especially sad because of the hints that these people really knew the [...]

    This book gets 4 stars simply because of the subject matter I have an incredible soft spot for the people who sacrificed so much during WWII Unfortunately, the writing was somewhat amateurish and read like a B movie from the 1940 s.ete with oh gosh dialogue I SO wanted this to be better than it was The story is fascinating, and in the hands of a accomplished writer, could have been moving and inspirational.

    Simply and beautifully written, it gives you a glimpse of how difficult things were during that time Wonderful love story.

    Simply written and emotional to read Thank goodness for our service people and the loved ones they leave behind.

    When i first heard about this book, I told my husband about it knowing he d read the Brokaw book He grabbed that book and read to me what Tom Brokaw had included I felt it was a story I wanted to read I m glad Nancy wrote her mom s story down, and I m sure it is most beneficial to the family to know a past love story It gave me a glimpse of the sad reality many, many thousands of young women faced through the war It s simply written, much like a simple transcription of her mom s words At points [...]

    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 fathe [...]

    What a wonderful storyWhat a wonderful story I laughed and I cried Thank you for a story from the greatest generation These men and their wives are true hero s Thank you for a great time of reading.

    War storyWritten well Survival of the women left behind The sadness of war Brings out that there is a place in our hearts always for those we love Enjoy reading.

    One disadvantage of a book in Kindle format is that you don t always see the information in the first few pages of a book, before the story begins I didn t realize until I looked at this book to write the review, and was flipping through the first few pages to the cover, that this is a true story That makes it much meaningful.Daphne, at age 20, was working at a beauty salon when she met Raymond Kelley The two were instantly attracted to each other, and spent as much time together as they could [...]

    Love and lossHeart breaking is the best way I can describe this story Daphne and Raymond were a loving adorable couple I wanted them to grow old together, but I knew that wasn t going to be the case I felt the void left by his death was maddening Without turing to God I don t see how Daphne could have survived, along with the love and support if loving family and friends Then her friend endured the same faith I think of the families, friends and loved ones left behind and men and women are order [...]

    Title When You Come Home The True Story of a Soldier s Heroism His Wife s Sacrifice Author Nancy Cavin PittsPages 224Year 2011Publisher Lighthouse Publishing of the CarolinasMy rating is 5 stars.Yes, it is a hard book to read as it really lets us see what one soldier s wife endured during WWII I felt compelled to read the book and allow my heart to travel the journey of the life of Mr Mrs Raymond Kelley Back then there was no easy or quick way to connect soldiers with their loved ones back home [...]

    I have always been fascinated by the life of American war brides during WWII, so that did draw my interest I very much enjoyed the snapshot of life in central Indiana in the 1940 s I am familiar with Lebanon, and it s interesting to consider how life there would have been at that time.I was moved by Daphne s story, and honestly wish I had known about it years ago I knew Daphne much later in her life and would have loved to have heard her tell her tale.I had a hard time connecting with the differ [...]

    When You Come Home by Nancy Cavin Pitts is what reading a love story is all about This book will, not only, pull at your heart strings, but will grab your heart and squeeze.The author has developed a tale of pure and simple love in a young couple in the early 1940s Nancy Cavin Pitts writing style weaves a story that will not let you put it down I found myself not wanting to go to bed but continuing to read this beautiful story.The characters developed by Nancy Cavin Pitts could be the kids next [...]

    It s a story of a young bride turned widow during the war, it s hard not to get involved and then sad upset It wasn t a gripping read but just knowing that it s all true compels you to keep reading I did really enjoy it though, and afterwards wanted to know , so researched Daphne online and continued to learn a little about what happened after this story ended It was good to learn how she d moved on and that Raymond still kept looking after her for years via the war widows benefit.

    This book is one of the most heart wrenching accounts of love and loss during war that I have come across The love that existed between Daphne and Raymond was truly something special, and I am so glad her daughter Nancy has chosen to share it with the world Looking forward to reading The Greatest Generation now

    Love story at its best.what a wonderful story the telling of this love story will keep you reading and reading no sex escapades, no foul language just the telling of a lovely story Daphne recounts the story of her love for her husband and their short life together at a time when our country was in a tumultuous period lovely story.

    This is a definitive example of what it must have been like on the home front for the loved ones of our soldiers If you have seen this review, know one thing You need to read this story It will settle in your heart, never to be forgotten.

    a real life story about love and heartbreak from a time our generation knows about but hears about less and less as the survivors of the war are passing i felt the emotions of daphne, loving and losing i also liked the spiritualness of the story, the way God is always present.

    Very nice book Simply written and a nice account of life during WWII A great read for the younger generation to help them get an understanding of what life was like in America during the war Christian values abound.

    Warning do not even attempt to read this book without a box of tissues This is a love story, the story of loss and loss But it s the story of God s love through even the worst circumstances Very sad, but very touching and beautiful We can only imagine how hard this was

    What a great romantic and heartfelt true story set in a turbulent war time in American history At times some parts were a bit sappy, but I really liked the story being told Much cleaner and better written than modern romantic stories.
