Lily Swanson longs to be a mother. Soon Frank should be home for good and they can furnish a nursery. Maybe even find a bigger house.
Joe Gallagher grew up in a small house with plenty of siblings. He loves the solitude of flying, but the war has dragged on for so long. He’s ready to go home.
Susan Talbot has a bad attitude. She’s estranged from her family and she doesn’t attract friends. But war can bring out the best in people and Susan’s surprised to realize she’s happy.
They all do their part in striving for victory in World War II. Sometimes, though, the danger can be hard to identify.

My Review: 
"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  historical history to read all of Terri Vanguard's books.  "Wheresoever They May Be" has a little romance but I don't really considered it to be a romance novel. The ending made me think if there is a second book it might be more of a romance.

I literally cried at times reading this book such as the scene where Lilly was ironing pillowcases and yes I mention this scene on Facebook and it was an interesting conversation that followed, ( it brought back memories of my grandma and her ironing days).  That was a good happy  cry  but other scenes brought sad cries for the characters in the story.

This book shows the first thoughts that we have about someone isn't always factual. Yes, the characters opinions changed during the time they served in the war together. This story also showed that sometimes our enemies isn't foreign but the people we even go to church with, ( I don't like to think this is true but too often it is.)

"Wheresoever They May Be" is a story of trust in God and overcoming.

I really hope another book is coming because I want to know if the car is ever reclaimed and how the romance hinted at the end turns out.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Terri Wangard
After eight years of thinking, breathing, researching B-17s, I was ready to disembark and concentrate on something else. But what? I had a vague idea of three friends who joined the WAC, the WAVES, and the WASPs, but nothing crystalized. Except for the WAC.
I didn’t want to completely turn away from flying, and I prefer topics that aren’t commonly known. How about a grasshopper pilot? My second character was on board.
I had toyed with the idea of a family generational series. A World War II story paired with a World War I story. But no, too unwieldy.
The WAC could have a sister, though, who stayed on the home front and did factory work. Oh, dear. I couldn’t completely stay away from B-17s. She’s building them.
She also needs a husband. He’ll be in the navy, and not on an aircraft carrier. A destroyer! (This was in the works before Sarah Sundin signed a contract for her just-concluded series about destroyer men. I checked with her: She was writing about the Atlantic war; my guy’s in the Pacific. No problem.) I studied the list of Pacific destroyers and, oooh, the Spence. All kinds of possibilities there.
So there I had it: a sailor, his Rosie-the-Riveter wife, her WAC sister, and a grasshopper pilot. They’re all doing their part to help win the war, but sometimes the enemy isn’t obvious.
