Twenty-year-old Mildred Read had a plan. It was the same plan that most any young woman her age had in 1917, to find a man to marry and live happily ever after, but in Oreana, Idaho—a backwater town filled with ranchers, hard-luck farmers, and misfits—the pickings were slim at best. There were plenty of young men in Boise, where she studied at the music conservatory, even some good Mormon boys. Few, however, were to her liking, and that was before they were all called up to join the fight in France. In Mildred’s mind, the war had decided it. She was doomed, doomed to the life of an old maid. Either that or she would have to settle for a boy the Army had passed over, a flatfooted nitwit with too few teeth. She had resigned herself to a future with sixteen cats and a parakeet, but what frustrated Mildred the most was her full-of-life sister, LaVerda. She was just sixteen but already corresponding with half of the boys in the Army! Mildred thought she would never stoop to write a perfect stranger until she saw a wanted ad in the Chronicle. A single letter would change her life, and the life of a lonely soldier, forever.
