Eleanor Mitchell has the perfect life. Happily married to her loving husband, Roger, she wants nothing more than to raise their two young children and live a quiet life in Flint, Michigan. But when Roger is drafted into the Second World War, Eleanor has no choice but to change. Determined to stay strong for her children and sisters (and to prove herself to her mother), Eleanor holds firm through the challenges of navigating wartime alone. Despite her efforts, and as Roger witnesses the dark horrors of war, it becomes clear that staying strong might not be enough to keep their family together—even if Roger makes it home. A heartwarming family story with a touch of the supernatural, Sometimes a Soldier Comes Home is a bittersweet but ultimately uplifting story of love, grief, and the unbreakable bond of family.
