About the Book

Upon their deaths, the love of Philip Gough Kane (Phil) and Jacqueline Norris Jones Kane (Jack) is revealed in some 200 transcribed v-mail and a dozen paper letters found by their daughter Jacqueline Kane while going through family papers. These letters provide a small glimpse of the author’s parent’s intense love for each other during the first four years of their marriage while they were separated during Phil’s time overseas during WWII. On the pages of this book are the letters written by this couple who strove to communicate with each other during their separation at this unforgettable historical moment.
