Customer Reviews of "When Is Daddy Coming Home?": An American Family During World War II
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.
