Eight young people, caught in the dreary circumstances war has handed them, seek to find a trace of joy in the holiday season. Their stories unfold with the exchange of letters. Forces of Love compelled Captain Jack Johnson to fall for his pen pal. Her letters helped him survive his time behind enemy lines and now prompt him to locate her in Boston. If he finds her, will he be welcomed? Lieutenant Joyce Aldergate penned an impulsive letter home, cutting ties with her childhood sweetheart. Now, a startling discovery in a battlefield hospital tent makes her question her actions and motivations. Where can she find The Missing Peace for which her heart hungers? A letter tells Kenshin Takano that his brother was unfaithful to his fiancee. Now, with news that his brother is dead, Kenshin travels to the camp where the fiancee is interned. Hoping to offer comfort, he is drawn into the trying circumstances that surround her life. Can he help her believe the promise that Christmas Always Comes? Betsy Anderson corresponds with enlisted men. Her kindness brings trouble, though, when one soldier, before his death in battle, claims her as his fiancee. When the man's sergeant tries to give Betsy a packet of letters, will she be able to correct the confusion without missing a real Engagement of the Heart? Relive the tragedies and triumphs of World War II ... see how God's steadfast presence brings His people through each trial ... and rejoice in His greatest "love letter," celebrated each Christmas - even in wartime.
