Frances W. Field is a graduate of Vassar and Western Reserve University from where she received a nursing degree. In 1942 her husband, Dr. Albert W. Field, finished his medical internship and received a commission with the United States Army. In the fall he was assigned to the Corps of Airborne Engineers and sent to North Africa leaving behind his pregnant wife. During the more than two years they were separated, Frances Field corresponded regularly with her husband. Dr. Field kept his wife's letters which more than four decades later she published in her first book World War II - Letters from Home, 1942-1944. Fran Field has long been involved in various community activities in New Hampshire and Connecticut, as well as in her native town of Cleveland, Ohio. Now in her eighties, she lives in a senior center in Lebanon, New Hampshire but returns regularly to the farm she managed for many years to help her son and grandchildren gather eggs, stack firewood, plant the garden, and harvest crops.

Fran Field is active in many volunteer activities including hospice, community health programs and activities relating to Vassar College and the Dartmouth Medical School.

Buy The Book
World War II - Letters from Home, 1942-1944 is a collection of letters written by Frances W. Field to her husband Dr. Albert S. Field, Jr. while he was a company surgeon with the U.S. Army. The letters are touching and intelligent; the selections offer an intimate, lyrical portrait of an extraordinary time in American history: a time of personal sacrifice and suffering balanced against the necessity of winning "the good war."

World War II - Letters from Home, 1942-1944 puts a very personal face on a different time and on a war that changed lives and changed the world.
