Book Summary

Everyone knows that war romances never last . . .
After a whirlwind romance and wedding, Helen Eberhart Daley, an army nurse, and Lieutenant Frank Daley, M.D. are sent to the front lines of Europe with only letters to connect them for months at a time.

Surrounded by danger and desperately wounded patients, they soon find that only the war seems real―and their marriage more and more like a distant dream. If they make it through the war, will their marriage survive?

Based on the incredible true love story, With Love, Wherever You Are is an adult novel from beloved children’s author Dandi Daley Mackall.

Book Review by Bree Herron

Months ago, I got my hands on this book. During the reading of this book since then I have savored every scene, every detail, every declaration of love. Dandi Daley Mackall not only created a beautiful historical romance, with a faith aspect, that makes anyone feel light, she also gave readers a chance to see into her life, through the tales that she grew up on.

I loved that though this is fictional it has a foundation of truth. Dandi states she used the stories of her childhood from her parents to help focus this story. As a reader it is easy to imagine while reading, a young child sitting hearing these adventures for the first time. The tales of her parent’s romance, and their strength through a time of terror. I imagined each new moment played out in my mind. Helen with her gumption and pleasant smile, Frank a man facing tough calls daily with soft grit, falling for Helen. It was their love story in this book that will make any reader stop and catch their breath. It is full of bumps, what-if’s and challenges but I felt like these two people showed what love can really endure. Dandi grew up with amazing parents, if they are like the fictional characters.

Dandi used one of my favorite techniques in telling this story. I love when we are traveling as a reader between the characters. One chapter Helen, the next Frank. Entwining when able. This book read like an intimate journal of thoughts, hope and love at times. Other times it was a letter style penned for intimate love.I didn’t feel like an invader though, I felt more like a neighbor, being privileged to share in their lives, hearing the stories and adventures over a rose bush.

Dandi, thank you for sharing with your readers this tender romance. I couldn’t imagine a love of less. This reader now has a new level of love.
