Millie White is the plain daughter of an eccentric professor living in a small New Hampshire university town by the sea. John McCarran is the handsome son of a dairy farmer in the mountainous North Country. The attack on Pearl Harbor changes their lives. They now take journeys much different than they originally imagined. While Millie discovers her affinity for business working as a pump jockey, John is across the sea experiencing the misery of war, too often finding comfort in strange women. In 1944, their paths cross on the university campus. John, now a wounded veteran, meets and falls in love with Millie. Millie is intrigued with John. These two young people from much different families discover they have the same stripe only they can see. They learn from one another a unique perspective of life, their similar goals, and how their love prevails over all obstacles.
