Dear Joe Boy: Story of a Mother's Love explores and included letters written by an Indiana mother to her son during WWII. He was stationed on a secret project in the Manaus Island in the Pacific theatre. Many service members wrote letters home and many of those letters survive. This story is unique because the letters were sent from a small Indiana community, into harm's way and they made their way back home with the sailor. Importantly, the letters then survived 70 years in an Indiana barn before they were rediscovered. This is a very personal story and readers will have a chance to read original letters' transcriptions.
