""When Is Daddy Coming Home?"" is the moving story of one young American family during World War II. The war was coming to a close in Europe, and Richard Carlton Haney was only four years old when a telegram arrived at his family''s home, informing them of his father''s death. That moment was burned into the young boy''s memory and it changed his and his mother''s lives forever. Sixty years later Haney, now a professional historian, reconstructs his parents'' lives during the war, drawing from their letters, his mother''s recollections, and his own memories to create a unique blend of history and memoir.
I am not a "reader" in any sense of the word. However, I read this book in an afternoon, having enjoyed every minute of it. It is a moving story of the family's struggles and moreso their accomplishments through a very trying time. I had Richard Haney as a professor in college, and through his book, I am still learning from him today.
