This story follows “With Eyes of Love” by Linda S. Glaz, but it reads nicely as a stand-alone as well.
Barbara’s younger sister, Abby, writes to Will Judge the entire time he serves in WWII. Letter by letter, she falls a little more in love with him. Will reads each letter and enjoys the news from home from the kid sister of his sister-in-law, but in his eyes, she’s still a teenager. When he arrives at the train station, he’s met by his whole family, including Abby, and his yet-to-be-announced fiancee. None of them were expecting him to show up with an orphan boy in tow.
