About this title


What a collaboration! The book written by an 80-year-old grandmother, the story told by her as a young lady. This was a unique and wonderful opportunity to pass on to another generation the trials and experiences of a young woman maturing in the social revolution of World War II. Were you there? If so, relive through these pages the time when "the war" superseded all else. Born later? Learn through this fascinating story what life was like in those exciting but fearsome times. There are real people, much like you, reacting as you might, to the outrageous circumstances of total war. To a great extent and at a scary pace, custom yielded to necessity and the unseemly became the norm. Daily casualty lists and disrupted whole lives drove a reordering of values and priorities. Thus, it was suddenly acceptable for a new bride to chase her husband as he crisscrossed the country following an imposed military career, savoring every precious hour of leave. Don't look over your shoulder at that looming black cloud, that these joyful episodes might be all their future held. Just enjoy your ride in a 1941 Chevy with the wife of a civilian soldier. Stay in rundown rented rooms and eat scanty meals. Share their triumphs, disappointments and uncertainties, Live the life of a "camp follower" via a stack of letters linked by illuminating narrative. Seriously, it's fun. - Jack Schueller, 2005
