Publisher's Summary

"I hope this letter gets to you quickly. We are always waiting, aren't we? Perhaps the greatest gift this war has given us is the anticipation...."

It's January 1943 when Rita Vincenzo receives her first letter from Glory Whitehall. Glory is an effervescent young mother, impulsive and free as a bird. Rita is a sensible professor's wife with a love of gardening and a generous, old soul. Glory comes from New England society; Rita lives in Iowa, trying to make ends meet. They have nothing in common except one powerful bond: The men they love are fighting in a war a world away from home. Brought together by an unlikely twist of fate, Glory and Rita begin a remarkable correspondence. The friendship forged by their letters allows them to survive the loneliness and uncertainty of waiting on the home front and gives them the courage to face the battles raging in their very own backyards. Connected across the country by the lifeline of the written word, each woman finds her life profoundly altered by the other's unwavering support.

A collaboration of two authors whose own beautiful story mirrors that in this book, I'll Be Seeing You is a deeply moving union of style and charm. Filled with unforgettable characters and grace, it is a timeless celebration of friendship and the strength and solidarity of women.

    "Charming, thoughtful, real"
    What made the experience of listening to I'll Be Seeing You the most enjoyable?

    Both readers were excellent and brought the characters to life. The book itself, in letter form, was wonderful.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A few tears


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very engaging book with two main characters that you grow to care about very much. You travel with them through the war years at home and watch them both grow and change as a result. It made me wish I'd talked to my mother more about her experiences as a young wife and mother with her husband in Europe fighting in WWII.

    "What a beautiful book."

    I loved it. So interesting to realize how different things were and then how much the same. It was poetic, sad, happy and sweet. Really enjoyed the narration.
