Home Sweet Home Front is a nostalgic return to the vanished America of World War II, a coming-of-age story that follows teenager Wesley Brower on the fast track to manhood amidst the tragedies of global conflict. With most of the male workers away in uniform, Wesley lands the job of his dreams at a local radio station. But his infatuation for sweet young things of the opposite sex proves to be a virtual minefield of rejection and bittersweet loss. Wesley's widowed mother somehow manages to hold the family together. Her older son joins the Navy to fight aboard a combat vessel, while her daughter faces terrors of her own within a few miles of home. A spunky boarding student adds spice to the drama, as does a country girl who is not as shy as she first appears. Rich in period detail, Home Sweet Home Front is a kaleidoscope of rationing, wartime telegrams, and goodbye kisses... of the USO, boy meets girl, and blue stars in the windows... of Lux Radio Theatre, overcrowded Pullmans, and the St. Louis Browns. Despite a vast assemblage of personae, the main "character" of Home Sweet Home Front is the pervasive shadow of war itself.
