* The last book in the ''All of a Kind Family'', ''Ella of All of the Kind Family'', has all the children doing home-front things during WorldWarI. Ella and her best friend fit the romantic side; both have boyfriends in the armed forces.
* Kate Seredy's ''The Singing Tree'' happens during WorldWarII. The farm keeps on plugging with the news in the background, the father having gone off to war, Russian prisoners being brought in to work, and WarRefugees, children, being brought to the farm so they could eat.
* The last AnneOfGreenGables work, ''Rilla of Ingelside'', is about WorldWarI in Canada. The central character is Anne's youngest daughter, who is not really the LoveInterest until the very end.

Can lead to UnfortunateImplications when the act of waiting is portrayed as passive, the spouse left to endure is AlwaysFemale, or the waiting person is put in a negative light as a NeutralFemale -- happy to stay home while TheHero wanders afield having adventures. Can also deconstruct the facade of a proud military family by realistically depicting the StepfordSmiler-levels of emotional stress and isolation that MyGirlBackHome shoulders with HeroicResolve, as well as the accepted but implicit pain caused when TheHero chooses LovedINotHonorMore.
