About the Book

There’ll come a day is the closing sentiment that a lonely G.I. used on many of the letters he sent back home to the young wife he had secretly married during the war. Mary did not expect to wait almost 5 years for his return any more than John expected to be in the second wave of the Normandy Beach invasion.

About the Author

Jane Hagedorn has followed up her first book on Word War II, There’ll Come a Day, with a narrative version that reflects the lonely homefront from the perspective of those who waited, seemingly forever, for the return of their loved ones from overseas. In a departure in style from her earlier non-fiction work, Hagedorn’s second book is a work of fiction that seeks to portray the same poignancy of a people at war by showcasing a personal, homefront experience.
