Dear Frank: Babe Ruth, the Red Sox, and the Great War is a work of historical fiction for the middle grade reader. The story follows a series of letters written by one brother to another during the latter part of 1918. It’s the last year of World War I and the Boston Red Sox are going to the World Series. Young Andrew, living in the Boston area, writes to his older brother, Frank, a soldier fighting on Europe’s western front, trying to keep him abreast of all that is going on around him, especially the rising fortunes of the Boston Red Sox led by the young hard-throwing and hard-hitting Babe Ruth.
