As the Depression worsens a distant war draws near. Dan O'Brian finds he is once again embroiled with the inner conflicts he had hoped were far behind him after returning from World War I. Dan holds a strong conviction that the United States should stay out of the new war — because this time it is his son, Cory, whose life could be threatened by a foreign menace. But convictions can change.
Through his work as a musician, Dan finds an unlikely new friend in Josh Brown, a man who challenges Dan's view of the world. And though both men share a common tragic link to the past, events of the future will soon forever bind the two men's families together.
In an era where the future is as uncertain as it is exciting, Cory O'Brian and Nathan Brown know they must defend freedom, just as their fathers have done. What they don't yet understand are the human costs of war — to those in the battle and those at home.I'll Be Seeing You reaches beyond the battlefield, as Jerry Borrowman delivers an enthralling and beautifully detailed narrative that will touch your heart and inspire your soul.
This is a book that is hard to put down. I was even reading it while standing at the bus stop. The characters are so real and the book captures many different personality traits. A greater understanding and appreciation is gained for those who went through such hardships to gain our freedom. I also found it educational to know the different duties of those involved. It happens that I finished the book on the eve of ANZAC Day, which in Australia is a day to remember those who fought in various wars. A great book.
We loved this book and the one before it!! It is a fast paced page turner and we could hardly put it down. Interesting part about the Jewish Mother having trouble accepting her son's conversion to the LDS faith. Hope to read more by this author!
