With All My Love by Jaime Lynn Shafer

$150.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
Based on a letter to Winifred Hanson, With All My Love reminds us of the challenges that soldiers face while on active duty overseas. Roy Hanson wrote to his wife often. She created scrapbooks of the letters, ephemera, and photographs he sent. Very few letters from Winnie survived due to Roy's ship sinking. He survived, floating in the ocean for approximately 3-4 days before being rescued. Like so many others, he never mentioned the hardships that he faced while at war, but focused on the small things that we take for granted.
