Wheresoever They May Be was a World War II story through and through. There were four main characters - Lily Swanson, her husband Frank, her sister Susan Talbot, and a friend of Susan's named Joe Gallagher. The four of them were spread through the Army (Susan), Navy (Frank), Air Force (Joe), and the supporters in America, reminiscent of Rosie the Riveter (Lily). The book cycled through their points of view, showing their contributions to the war, their struggles, and their interactions with each [...]

Wheresoever They May Be by Terri Wangard is an epic Christian novel covering the war years 1943- 1945. As a historian I really enjoyed reading it. As a reader I loved getting to know the characters.The novel covers many aspects of the war as it roams from America to Europe to the Pacific. Life on the home front, life in the navy, life in the air force, life for the WAC's - the reader experiences life on the factory floor, in the skies, on the seas and on the land. Everyone suffers. There are no [...]

Terri Wangard does a beautiful job of combining vivid characters with authentic history. I always learn so much from reading her novels, but the learning takes place in the middle of the action – in the middle of the characters’ daily lives under the shadow of World War Two.Wheresoever They May Be reinforced for me the brevity of life and the courage of those who fought to save the world from the evil that threatened to win. This isn’t an easy read from that aspect – you will grieve as y [...]

Wheresoever They May Be is a wonderful book by Terri Wangard. This author really has talent and knows how to weave quite a story. I cannot believe this is the first book I have read by her. I have no idea why that is, because this is a fabulous read. I loved it! I found it to be rich in historical detail. I felt like I was transported back in time to the era of World War II and was among the characters of Lily, Frank, Joe, and Susan. I felt like I really knew them all and knew what they were goi [...]

Teri Wangard is a new author to me.I love her ability to make me smile, hold my breath, and cry whatever the scene may be about at the time.I will add her to my list of faves to read. I also love some of the bible verses the author has put in there.Psalm 23 is personally my favorite. One verse stands out to me and it's Romans 8:8 There is therefore now NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. I feel blessed!I can relate [...]

I'm not even sure where to start. (I'm pretty sure I'm going to regret writing this the instant I finished, but I want everything fresh and firmly fixed in my mindAnd doing it all without spoilers is going to kill me!) I can't even use my outline on this book. This book has taken everything I thought I knew about WWII books and crumpled it up, then tossed in the nearest wastebasket. Start with the good. The characters were awesome. Lily and Frank were the cutest thing. Joe was funny. Susan was a [...]

1. Historical accuracy.Usually, when you find a book that is solidly accurate, it reads like a history textbook info dump. But Terri Wangard did a fabulous job of weaving a plausible, engaging, and heart-gripping story in with some lesser-known historical accounts. To be honest, when I saw the particular event she chose, I was certain I’d hate the book. I love being wrong about stuff like that.2. Wonderful characters.I love characters—endearing, revolting, loving, hateful, emulative, wicked [...]

Filled with wonderful details about life during WWII!These characters are incredibly well developed. I was able to relate to them on an emotional level. Early in the story I was feeling a little overwhelmed by how many main characters there were and the different viewpoints that the story is told from. As the book progressed and I started to find out the way their lives intersected I was able to really follow what was going on.All of the different situations that they faced were described in mar [...]

“Wheresoever They May Be” is a beautifully written novel that features four points of view of two men and two women about their individual lives during World War 2 and the roles they each played. Sometimes humorous, other times dramatic, and often poignant, the story offers readers an intimate look at what actual people may have experienced during the war. Whether in the sky, on a ship, operating a telephone switchboard, or working in a factory back home, each individual had an important rol [...]

I have always loved learning about the World War II era, and this book is filled with many historic details about World War II that most books and even textbooks leave out. From the very beginning you will find yourself drawn into the intensity of the War. The author shows us the different struggles that people suffered throughout the War by allowing us to follow the viewpoints of four different individuals during the War. While each chapter does switch to a new person, I did not find it confusi [...]

I cannot start this review without mentioning the cover. The lighting is perfect, the cover model looks wonderful, and I love that shade of red! It just really grabbed my attention and made me want to learn more about this mysterious yet sad woman. And that beautiful background? I want to go there. It just looks so inviting and relaxing. It was love at first sight!Now for the story. First of all, I loved the four point of views. I know having that many POV's can confuse a lot of people, but I di [...]

When "Wheresoever They May Be" came available to do a review, I jumped at the chance because I had enjoyed reading Terri Wangard's other books. I am glad that I got the chance to read this book. I liked how we got to follow the different characters (Lily Swanson, Joe Gallagher, Frank Swanson, and Susan Talbot) and see their perspective of the war. I think my favorite characters were Joe and Susan. I was also glad to not have to wait long to see how the characters were intertwined with each other [...]

Terri Wangard is a new author to me and this is the first book of hers that I have read. Being a Navy brat/former wife I enjoyed the military aspect of the book. The characters were real and believable. Her historical aspect was spot on. One of the reasons I am such a fan of historical fiction is that I learn things I didn't know as I read, and once again I was reminded of the shortness of our life here on earth and the courage that not only our men and women in uniform have to protect our natio [...]

Wheresoever They May Be by Terri Wangard is a story that takes readers to World War II and portrays family and friends as realistic characters struggling with the horrors of war. Wangard tells a well-researched story through the experiences of four characters, each very different and in different scenarios, and yet dealing with the same emotions as the harsh circumstances around them threaten to break them emotionally, spiritually and physically. A young wife keeping the home fires burning, a si [...]

Just finished, very difficult to put in words the impact of this book.  I'm going to sit here and let it soak in.  I read the last page and took a breath-WOW!  The book was way more intense than I expected.  It was a page turner.  Intense. Exciting. Sometimes jaw dropping!!!I loved that it stayed real.  The book wasn't one where every thing turned out great.  It did give you hope.  You can survive.  You will grieve but GOD is there to help you pick up the pieces. GOD promises Everlasti [...]

Terri Wangard’s books are thoroughly engrossing and Wheresoever They May Be continues her standard of exceptional writing and you-feel-like-you’re-right-there historical fidelity. The characters’ believability and stirring storyline make this novel extraordinary. The story unfolds as each chapter features the wartime experiences of the main characters: Joe (highly resourceful ‘grasshopper’ pilot-turned-enlisted-turned officer), Lily (Frank’s wife serving her country working swing shi [...]

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOKFor a WWII book to be good, attention to detail is a must, and historical scenes and events accurately displayed and Terri Wangard does just that in her book, ‘Wheresoever They May Be.’ And as the story unfolds, I really enjoyed getting to know each of the characters and their journey and struggles as their story of the war was told. And if you are a WWII buff, you will love all of the history throughout this book in the scenes so vividly described by the author. Ms. [...]

Terri Wangard’s latest book gives us a glimpse of World War II from several different angles, and every one of them is at times funny and other times heart-wrenching. Through her characters, we experience the hazards of life aboard ship in the Pacific theater as well as the air war in Europe. We peek into the lives of the WACs (Women’s Army Corps) and we see what it was like to live with rationing and war-time jobs for the families back home.Her characters are so well-drawn that I shed tears [...]

I just love this author. I try and read whatever she releases. She crafts real feeling characters, and the descriptions of the events. It's like a historical lesson and story all in one. There is a lot of research that went into this book, and from what I can tell (I have a MA in Military History) it is all historically accurate. I loved that she was able to master different points of views. I liked seeing the war through different characters. I Felt that it helped add to the excitement. Differe [...]

Wheresoever they may beTerri does know how to write a good book about the war time. The book involves the ones in the war and the ones left behind. Loved that some of the women worked on the aircraft. Lily's husband Frank and sister Susan are both overseas. Then there is Joe that I kept wandering how he was connected. I could tell a lot of research went into writing this book. Liked the Author note at the end of the book. I enjoyed the chapters with Lily and her friends the most and how the enjo [...]

Wheresoever They May Be is a well-written, powerful, and sometimes gritty book about realities of life during WWII. The novel follows four people whose lives intersect off and on at home and abroad. Author Terri Wangard has obviously conducted extensive research about the era, the factory work, and the military. Although sometimes overwhelming, I loved learning about aspects of the time period I was unfamiliar with. Several things also intrigued me enough to conduct my own research to learn more [...]

Stories about World War II (or any war): You know they're going to have a little patriotism, some heartache, and plenty of action. That is, if they're any good at all. And this one is. I love the way Terri Wangard weaves the lives of so many people together. I know it's fiction--but it's so darn believable!Lily Swanson and her husband Frank have so many plans for the future. She wants to be a wife and mother, but while Frank is off fighting the war, she will do her part. She becomes a electricia [...]

This book follows four main characters and incorporates different aspects of war. Lily is the wife working a war job on the home front while her husband, Frank, serves in the navy. Her sister, Susan, is a WAC overseas operating telephones; and largely unconnected Joe is a spotter pilot for the army. The reader sees the events of the novel through each perspective and gets a great feel for life in that time. As in her earlier books, the amount of research incorporated into the novel is amazing.

"Wheresoever They May Be" by Terri Wangard is a wonderful thoughtful book. It is about World War 2 and so therefore the ending isn't a happy ever after fairy tale type of story.I really like the way the chapters are divided between Frank, Lilly, Susan and Joe, and tells their own experiences. There is some history included in the story but it is in written as part of the story and not boring at all ( I included this because I am not a fan of history at all.)I encourage anyone who likes to read h [...]

From the title "Wheresoever They May Be" (a quote from President Roosevelt's D-Day prayer) to the end of the story, this is the best book that Terri Wangard has written so far. The book is written in the POV of four different characters who are stationed in four different places during WWII - at home and abroad. Terri brings these four people to life with her amazing attention to details that surround each one - a naval ship in the Pacific theatre, his riveter wife waiting for him at home, her W [...]

Terri Wangard’s latest WWII novel is a beautiful tale of love, perseverance and bravery. I highly recommend it. She draws in her readers through the meticulous use of setting and authentic historical details. Her descriptive battle scenes tell the story of war without being heavy handed. Terri allows her characters to experience loss and adversity, while giving them avenues to search out their faith in God. She does a skillful job of weaving the spiritual aspects of their lives into the nitty [...]

I was blown away by the detail and authenticity of Terri Wangard's writing. I have never been a history buff, but I was drawn in by Lily, Frank, Joe, and Susan as they navigated the different fronts of WWII. Whether by air, or sea, or the WAC experience, I felt the pain and discomfort of war. Wangard caught me off guard with her ending, but then she held true to the story of WWII while I wanted a fairytale. Wangard's style is easy to read and catapults you into every day life with all its twists [...]

This is a great story about the last year or so of WWll. It has wives and sisters and husbands and others all throughout this book. It shows how the men and women handled the war years. Some were in the war and others were at home. I really like how this book handled all the characters. I think my favorite characters are Lily and Frank. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

This novel captivates the reader with true-to-life conflicts encountered during WWII. Follow Lily, Susan, Frank, and Joe in the Homeland, Europe, and the open seas. The dramatic details of the horrors of war still shock and plant the reader in the middle of the action. This novel is an experience not soon to be forgotten.

So, we have a sailor, his Rosie-the-Riveter wife, her WAC sister, and a grasshopper pilot which made this a very interesting book. I enjoyed how we got to follow along with each person in their work and how they all were intertwined as they tried to survive WWII. If you like historical fiction, especially WWII you will like this one!I was gifted a copy and my review is voluntary
