“With Love…wherever you are” by Dandi Daley MacKall, book review
WWII has changed everything! Families are spread around the world, to places most have never even heard of before being shipped out there. And not just the boys, but the girls too- as nurses, in the case of Helen.
Helen knew nursing was her ticket out of the small town where she grew up. And it was. She landed a job in a big hospital caring for wealthy women in the OB-GYN wing. But after one bad day, she quit. Suddenly, she needed a job and the Army was her solution. Before she know what had happened, she is in Battle Creek working in the Army Hospital.
Dr. Frank Daley was able to defer his military service long enough to finish medical school. But the day after graduation, he was at boot camp and then assigned to the Army hospital in Battle Creek. That is where he met Helen, as she was exiting the men’s rest room. It was love at first sight for him and he did all he could to capture her attention. But when he is suddenly deployed, he cannot even tell her good bye. It is only through letters and a quick weekend wedding that this love story continues.
This is a bitter sweet story of war time romance kept alive through letters. I enjoyed the story and the characters.
