Author Tracie Peterson has combined four "novellas", each centering around a different main character, but all set during World War II, into one inspiring book guaranteed to warm your heart and soul.
In, "Coming Home," the central character, David Cohen, a graduate of the school of hard knocks, enlists in the Navy during World War II rather than go to prison. Supervisor, and chief petty officer, Kenny Bennet, a man from a strong family foundation, is able to see through David's hardened exterior and takes the outcast under his wing.
When Kenny is tragically killed during the war, David is left alone without his mentor to guide him. In a desperate attempt to numb the pain, David prepares to end his life. Call it divine intervention or coincidence, but David's actions are halted when he believes he hears Kenny's voice. In a life altering moment, he chooses to seek out Kenny's family and express gratitude for the kindness he showed him before moving on again.
What unfolds is the story of how David, a man with nothing, gains the world through the kindness and love of the Bennet family, who unknowingly to him, already know him through letters written by their son Kenny. The Bennet's gain a son and David gains a family - in more ways than one.
