"I'll Be Seeing You" by Suzanne H. Palmieri & Loretta Nyhan was one of those reads that I couldn't but down until the very end and then I was left thinking Wow, what a read.  This novel was written of two women on the home front, Rita and Glory, who had never met in real life  who  become pen pals. Their husbands were overseas during WWII. This was of  a series of letters between the two women with all  the details of what was going on and will even include  'ration recipes of WWII.'  Glory was a twenty-three year old mother that lived in Rockport, Massachusetts and her husband was fighting the war in Europe. She   was  seven months pregnant and have a two year old son. Glory has two best friends...one her husband Robert and Levi who was left behind while her husband is off to the war.  With Robert being gone Glory and Levi will have a affair and Glory needed someone to talk with turns to Rita for advice.
Rita being the older women married Sal who was a professor and lived in Iowa City.  Her husband was serving as a medic in north Africa and they had a son that was serving with the Navy.  After discovering that her sons girlfriend was pregnant now she must 'draw on her inner resources and lean on her new friend for help.'  You will find that these two authors  'each took on one character and wrote the book back and forth with the letters, thus the flow and plotting feels unforced and natural' to give the reader a well written novel.  This novel really turns out to be a very good charming novel of a friendship that was for me well worth read from the collaboration of these two authors that will  give the reader a very good  read.  The friendship of these two ladies...Rita and Glory was one of those reads that will stay with you long after the read.  This was one incredible read that I would recommend to you.
