Home and Away: A World War II Christmas
By Dean Hughes

"Beautifully nostalgic. Hughes expertly captures the spirit of family, of war, and of Christmas. Home and Away isn't just a book, it's a gift." -Jason F. Wright, New York Times best-selling author

"Home and Away is far and away the best story I have read this year. Awesome and moving." -Obert Skye

"It's 1944 and teenager Dennis Hayes longs to join his older brother Glen, who is fighting in Europe..When his family receives word that Glen has been wounded, Dennis realizes that going to war is not so glamorous. Christmas isn't the same without Glen, but the Hayes family members hope and pray that they'll be reunited soon. Hughes's faith-filled, old-fashioned story feels like it could have been written during the period in which it takes place." -Library Journal

"Dean Hughes has found a way to imbue a tragic war story with the enduring hope of Christmas and the love of family. It's a story to remember!" -Chris E. Crowe
