Til the Boys Come Home

by Jerry Borrowman


Quick Overview

A riveting novel set in the battlefields of World War I, 'Till The Boys Come Home is the story of two young friends, Danny O'Brian and Trevor Richards. With America's involvement in the European conflict, the two boys find themselves far from their families in Pocatello, Idaho. Danny is fighting in the infamous trenches against a determined German opposition. Trevor is battling the enemy in the skies over France. The debut historical novel of author Jerry Borrowman, 'Till The Boys Come Home recreates what war was like in the battlelines of the ground and the combats of the sky during the first war to bring such horrors as poison gas, machines guns, tanks, and rapid fire artillery to bear. The characters are superbly drawn, the attention to historical detail is impressive, and the storyline is totally engaging from beginning to end.


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. Danny 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.
