“What an enduring love story! Using primary documents and letters, writer / curator Barbara Hannon allows us vicarious entry into the world of her parents during a time when the rest of the world was on fire. I cried my way through parts of it, recognizing the connections of family, a midwest location, and a love that would not be tamped down by the constraints and deprivations of WW II.” - Elizabeth Gatewell, Librarian

Barbara is the daughter of a couple whose story unfolds during WWII, and she discovers a hidden treasure after their passing. A vivid narrative of her parents’ lives emerges from a box filled with letters, telegrams, and wartime documents.

The telegram from the War Department was delivered to Barbara’s mother on January 23, 1944, that her father had been missing in action over Germany since January 11. Barbara’s parents had been married for only two months when he flew to England to serve as a navigator on a B-17 Fortress flying bombing missions over Germany. They remained separated for over two years after his plane was shot down, and he became a prisoner of the Germans. The letters they wrote each other kept their spirits and hopes up. Their story unfolds through those letters and reveals strength, courage, hope, and enduring love that transcended the horrendous events of the war that interrupted their lives like so many others of their generation.

Witness a narrative that breathes life into history and celebrates the indomitable spirit of those who navigated through tumultuous times.
