"Daphne Cavin's poignant story of love, loss and sacrifice was one of the most memorable I encountered in writing The Greatest Generation. Her daughter now completes the story with this very heartfelt book." - Tom Brokaw

The war claimed Daphne Kelley s young husband s life, but it couldn t keep Raymond and his abiding love from being with her when she needed him most.

First told in Tom Brokaw s landmark bestseller, The Greatest Generation, Daphne and Raymond Kelley's story provides what New York Times book reviewer Michael Lind called, perhaps the most compelling love story in Brokaw s book.

Taking its title from a poem newlywed Daphne sent her soldier-husband during World War II, When You Come Home tells of their young love in the heartland at the brink of war, and of the crushing uncertainty and fear as they find themselves a world apart. When her poem comes back to Daphne blood-stained by Raymond s mortal wounds she accepts the loss. And yet, through her pain, the grieving young widow finds that her faith provides hope and healing amidst the wounds of war.

Review:

"Daphne Cavin's poignant story of love, loss and sacrifice was one of the most memorable I encountered in writing The Greatest Generation. Her daughter now completes the story with this very heartfelt book."
- Tom Brokaw

“Daphne Cavin’s story is perhaps the most memorable of all the stories I’ve been privileged to tell in my newspaper career. Daphne shared her memories and her scrapbook documenting her brief marriage to a soldier who was killed in action in southern France in 1944. I wrote her story in February 1998, and it took on a life of its own when Tom Brokaw’s researchers discovered it and included it in the best-selling book, The Greatest Generation. Brokaw put Daphne on the NBC Nightly News several times and she became a symbol of the sacrifices made by war widows. Her daughter Nancy Cavin Pitts has done a wonderful job of fleshing out Daphne’s poignant story in When You Come Home. It makes this war widow’s story come alive in rich detail in ways that newspapers and television never could. Mrs. Pitts has given us the definitive portrait of a World War II war bride whose love was lost in the defense of freedom.”
– John Flora
