Imagine it’s 1945. You are waiting for your husbands to return from WW2…and they don’t.
Fast forward to 1949. You work in a mill where you aren’t appreciated. You hate it, and people are beginning to wonder why you don’t remarry and give up the traditionally male jobs you do now that you need to support yourself in the burgeoning after-war economy. They want you to go back to your kitchens, take care of your existing children, remarry, and have more children…the American way.
But what if you don’t want that traditional way of life? What if you have fallen in love with another woman and wish to make a new life with her?
Marion Whiting and Barbara Jenkins are two such women. They are stuck in dead-end jobs in a mill, sharing a life they believe no one would understand…and each other. After finding an ad in the local newspaper, they decide to give up everything for a dream. They take their children and go. But the work involved in creating their dream just might quash the dream, their relationship, and the life they are building together. How can two women alone with their children on a secluded island make it all work?
