At fifteen, Danny O’Brian dreams of being something different than what his union-leader father has become—and now that the Richards family has moved to town, maybe it’s possible. The Richardses have everything that the O’Brians seem to lack—education, money, social standing—and best of all, they are truly kind to Danny.
Everything changes, however, when war takes the two young men far beyond the peaceful streets of Pocatello, Idaho. Dan must fight in the trenches, reluctantly using the one skill he was taught by his father. Meanwhile, Trevor battles the enemy in the skies. But war will not be kind to these two men with a brotherly bond.
A lyrical and sweeping story of a friendship unfolding in the days of the First World War, ’Til the Boys Come Home shows that there can be life after tragedy and that sometimes the one we need most desperately to forgive is ourself. [publisher's blurb]
