Based on the love letters written by Jenny Davis' aunt Wynne to her young soldier husband over a four-year period during World War II, Dear Heart gives listeners a poignant and vital glimpse into the lives of women who were left behind while their men went off to fight. Narrator Stuart Halusz uses a thoughtful, sensitive tone as he describes the background and conditions that ordinary people faced during the war, whether at home or on the battlefield. His narration is complemented by Rebecca Davis' affecting, full-bodied performance: Her Wynne is alive and hopeful despite only receiving two replies, and although this story ends on a tragic note, listeners will find themselves unable to forget its emotional power.

Can't think of anything like it.
Too many to mention
A look at the world war from a waiting wife at home's point if view. A real tear jerker.
