In Europe during WWII, Ray Whipps served as an infantryman under General Patton in the trenches of Normandy, Paris, and Belgium. Betty was a field nurse in Cherbourg, France. After Ray was injured in a mortar blast, the two met and bonded over their shared faith. As Betty nursed Ray back to health, they fell in love and vowed to marry after the war.
However, soon after Ray returned to his unit, he was captured by German forces and held captive in Stalag VII, Germany’s largest prisoner of war camp. It was there that Ray’s faith was put to the ultimate test. He endured the most horrific weeks of his life. They were weeks marked by brutality, malnutrition, backbreaking labor, and near-constant death. The only thing that kept him alive was his faith in Jesus Christ – and the dream of someday reuniting with Betty.
Told in first person from Ray’s perspective, with personal wartime letters from Betty throughout, Til We Meet Again is a sweeping love story set amid the backdrop of WWII. It is an epic story of faith, hope, and love, and a nostalgic look back at one of the most memorable periods in American history.
