Publisher's Summary

The war is over, and the boys are coming home. It’s time for women everywhere to leave the factories and return to their rightful places…in the kitchen.

Women did their duty and filled many traditionally male jobs while their men were fighting for their country. But now, the men are back and ready to take over. But what if your man didn’t return? And what if you found you enjoyed the freedom your job gave you?

Neither Marion Whiting nor Barbara Jenkins loved their jobs in the mill; however, they did the best job they could for their government, and after being widowed by the war, those jobs had become a necessity. The two women fell in love and moved in together to save on expenses, but they soon discovered life very different from when they were married to men. After giving up their individual homes in order to buy a place together, they discovered that no bank would give them a loan without a responsible male’s signature. Since Marion and Barbara no longer had men to "take care" of them, they decided to take care of themselves, and each other.

Dreams are meant to be pursued, so Marion and Barbara bought an island using the last of their combined money. They wanted to create a vacation getaway, where they could raise their shared family, but they had no idea what it would take to make their dreams on this island a reality. 

Will they have to give up their dreams to save their relationship? Will their freedom be thwarted by outside influences? Come along as two women in post-war Maine embark on their dream. 

"What could possibly go wrong?” you ask....
