With Love, Wherever You Are – Book Review

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

With Love, Wherever You Are, written by Dandi Daley Mackall, tells the love story of her parents during World War II as each of them served in different areas of Europe. Helen as an Army nurse. Frank as an Army doctor.

Faced with deployment overseas, they decide to marry after a VERY brief time together against their parents’ protests. Their main link during their separation was the letters they daily wrote each other. With the inconsistency of mail delivery, misunderstandings, hurt, and doubt arose in both Helen and Frank that threatened their marriage .

What I appreciated most about With Love, Wherever You Are was the honest way Dandi portrayed her parents and the war. The details included in this story provide a richer understanding of the emotions, fears, doubts, and questions those fighting during World War II struggled with.

If you have an interest in seeing what life was like for those in the Army who had the job of treating the war wounded on foreign soil, then With Love, Wherever You Are may just be the book for you.

    • I really enjoyed the book and learned a lot about the personal side of what it would be like living through World War II in this particular time and situation.
