Not engraved in stone — 3 Comments

  1. How wonderful that she ‘knew’ he would come home. 16! Inconceivable. I have a 23 year old who I just don’t think is ready. Still, times were so different then. Lovely story and memory.

  2. I knew that story but hadn’t realised they were married. I love this story – triumph of hope over despair.

  3. My apologies. I’ve corrected the story. They were only engaged before he went away. Everyone told her that he must be dead, but she refused to believe it and waited till he came home
