When You Come Home

One of the best things about the Kindle my husband surprised me with for my birthday has been the free books available through Amazon. Hidden amongst the many cheap romances are beautiful gems of all genres that I most likely would never have stumbled on elsewhere.

When You Come Home was one of those surprise treasures. The deceptively simple story of a young soldier and his war bride, trying to love and live as much as they can in the short time before he is shipped overseas, it is beautiful, poignant and powerful.

If you know what it is to be apart from someone you love, your heart will break for them as they try to stay strong in their separations. The faith and support of their families is touching, and the strong moral fiber that used to bind every corner of our country will give you pause to think about and pray for our modern world.

Whether you usually read WWII books or not, I encourage you to check out When You Come Home. It's a pretty quick read, but it will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
