I have so much respect for what these men and women did for their country, and this hit home even more so because it is based on the author's parents and their real letters.

    4. Dandi Daley Mackall’s With Love, Wherever You Are is a stirring and emotional WWII novel. I became invested in the characters, seeing the war through their eyes and circumstances.

    6. A lovely WW2 romance based on the author's own parents' story, told mainly through correspondence. The narrative between the letters is well-written, filling in the story, giving a perspective from both Helen and Frank, with a touch of humor sometimes. Their frustrations of being separated, determination to find a way to see each other, and remain loyal to their vows, is conveyed well. Their love story is a bright contrast to the daily challenges they face as Army medical personnel, and the ugly [...]

    8. of my favorite two fiction genres to read is World War II. The second is mysteries, suspense, and thrillers. World War II grips my imagination because of the heroic men, women, and boys of the 1940's. I enjoy how they didn't think twice about lying about their age or enlisting to defend our country. It is hard to believe that it has only been a little over seventy years since World War II, and America's values has gone so far south that there really isn't values anymore. The heroines of World Wa [...]

    9. Imagine being entrusted with hundreds of your parents' love letters with the caveat that you can't read them until both mom and dad are gone. What a bittersweet moment that must have been when the author finally got to open that first letter. As she read of their wartime romance, creative juices started to flow and the result is the astounding fictional account of Frank and Helen love's story. And it is totally brilliant.Be sure to read the author's note at the back of the book which includes th [...]

    13. I knew that I was going to like the book when I read it's "blurb". Well.I more than liked it. It was definitely a book that I'll keep and remember - probably even read again in a year or so (which I rarely do). Actually, I had a hard time putting the book down and finished it within a few days - unusual for me with a paperback, as I usually only read when my Kindle isn't available. Although fictional, the story is based upon letters (and probably stories she heard) between the author's Mom and D [...]

    14. Based on the authors' real parents, this story of love unfolds during the tumultuous times of WWII. It's a story of compassion, of working hard to serve where you are, of finding a peace only God can sustain, and most of all, of the strength of love. Longer review to come.

    15. Fantastic war true love story! I thoroughly enjoyed this book once it got going. I was not wanting it to end. I so enjoyed reading a chapter a day. Great inspiring about true love and how they handled different situations, making mistakes along the way, and walking with God. Wow.uly enjoyed the wartime stories as well. I highly recommend this book.

    16. Based on the true story of the authors parents, but does not read as a documentary. Gives a peek at the true horrors people went through and the way people coped. At the same time the love and reality of a courtship and marriage during the war.

    17. Love Goes the Distance!PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW ON MY BLOG: bookreadingtic/2017/03/11/ THANK YOU!In 1996, the author’s dying father asked her to go to his home’s attic, and get his old army trunk—and to make sure she did it when her mom wasn’t home. He also made her promise that she wouldn’t look at the contents until both he and the author’s mother had passed away. Although Ms. Mackall did what her father instructed her, she pestered him until he told her what was in the trunk. At la [...]

    18. This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.I've been a long-time casual fan of Dandi Daley Mackall's books for years now, ever since I got hooked on the Starlight Animal Rescue series when I was younger. Mackall always writes children's books filled with equal parts thrills and heart, my favorite combination. When I saw the option to review this book, though, I knew straight away that it was a different beast. This is no 200-word animal rescue book for kids; rather, it's a 450+ pa [...]

    19. This book is based on the true love story of the author’s parents. They met in a men’s room during World War II and soon both were serving on the front lines of Europe. I usually don’t like reading letters in books but these letters served to keep moving the plot along. They even had a secret code that I enjoyed solving right along with them.I enjoyed getting to know Helen. She was a spunky nurse. She had a winsome way with her patients. She felt their pain and worked to alleviate it in an [...]

    24. I loved this book, and all the while I was reading it made me think of my parents, and their lives during WWII.The author wrote a fictional story based on her parents letters they wrote each other during this period of time. They really came alive to me, and found myself on the battlefields and in the hospital, or tents. Loved the account that she gave at the end about how much was real and how she had taken literary license in writing her book.I shutter when I read that some of the incidents ar [...]

    25. My friend from Hamilton Missouri grew up with Dandi Daley. Dandi's parents were doctors in Hamilton and Pam's Mother & Dad & family were patients. I remember hearing about the Daley's wartime romance and marriage from Pam, when the book was progressing. I just completed the book and give it a five star as I was unable to put it down and sad to have it end. The author is a really good writer, she captures her parents romance through their letters. This book is full of WW2 history & re [...]

    26. A wonderful WWII story. This one is a novel, but based on the lives of the parents of the author. Both characters are in the Army, he as a doctor and she as a nurse. Both are sent to the European Theatre, but to different places. Along with Army buddies, they make friends with locals that allows them to snatch weekends together here and there. Dandi Daley Mackall wrote a lovely, warm story and the reality of it came from letters her parents had written to each other during the war. What a wonder [...]

    27. I had a hard time putting this book down. I thought it was well written and had good character development. I really enjoyed the author’s page where she told how she had gotten the story from her parents and their letters. There were over 600 letters between the two of them. My only comment is that I really don’t like it when modern phrases are used in a book that is historical. “The elephant in the room” was not around in the 40’s and yet the author put it in the story. It kind of int [...]

    28. I know there's an incredible amount of WW 2 fiction out there, but I can't help it, I'm just drawn to it. I loved this story. A doctor, a nurse, get married after only knowing each other for weeks, trudge through the remainder of the war writing each other love letters and sharing very occasional rendezvous. The author is the real life daughter of these two characters. It's a beautiful love story with real significance. The characters had depth and I felt like I really knew each of them. It was [...]

    29. I very much enjoyed this book - as a fan of historical fiction (especially WWII) and letters. The way the story unfolded via both letter and story-telling added to the interest. The characters were well developed and the details surrounding the aspects of war from the perspective of both nurses and doctors added to the story. I particularly enjoyed the "after the story" at the end. Enjoyed reading about what happened to Helen and Frank after the war - and appreciated the author sharing photos as [...]
