Still a teenager when America declared war on Germany and Japan, Stella Suberman, not hesitating for even a moment, bought a blue Vera Maxwell suit and a leghorn hat made of fine straw, found a rabbi, and married Jack a week after he joined the Army Air Corps. By the time the war ended in 1945, Stella was twenty-three, and very much an adult.

The untold story of a soldier's wife on the home front. Only nineteen when America enters WWII, Stella Suberman follows her husband from air base to air base - from Miami to California, Arizona to Kansas - and gives us a vivid picture of America and its people with a novelistic sense of scene and character.

When Stella Suberman wrote her first memoir, The Jew Store, at the age of seventy-six, she was widely praised for shedding light on a forgotten piece of American history--Jewish life in the rural South. In her new memoir, Suberman reveals yet another overlooked aspect of America's past--the domestic side of war. Her story begins in the Miami Beach she grew up in, when hotel signs boasted "Always a View, Never a Jew" and where a passenger ship lingered just off shore carrying hundreds of European Jews hoping for--but never finding--sanctuary. It was a time of innocence, before that war in Europe became our war. Stella was nineteen when America entered the fighting. By the time she was twenty-three, the war was over. She married Jack Suberman the week he enlisted and set out alone to join him in California. She was kicked off trains to make room for soldiers, her luggage was stolen, she was arrested for soliciting, but she was determined to follow her husband. And she did so for the next four years as he was sent from air base to air base, first training to be a bombardier and then training others. It wasn't until he was sent overseas to fly combat missions that she finally went back home to wait, as did so many other soldier's wives. This remarkable memoir renders a double understanding of war--of how it matured a young woman and how it matured a country. By personalizing the patriotism of the 1940s, Stella Suberman's story becomes the story of all military wives and serves as a powerful reminder of how differently many Americans feel about war sixty years later.

A friend recommended The Jew Store and I chose it for our Book Club. I enjoyed it so much that I was delighted to find Suberman's second book. As a senior citizen, I was glad to find that the author wrote both books when she was over 75. As a North Carolinian, I appreciated that the author spent time in Chapel Hill. An additional interest for me was that I had written my doctoral dissertation on Harry Golden. Do people remember him?

It is a sweet story, but it didn't draw me in like her previous book. I skimmed large portions.

Whether or not you remember WWII, you will love this book, which in a way is a sequel to "The Jew Store," the author's previous book, which is one of my favorites. This one gives a picture of America in the WWII years from a personal viewpoint that is both revealing and honest. The author's early years in Miami Beach makes for fascinating reading. When I noticed that Publishers Weekly had made it its Editor's Pick, I trusted their judgment and got the book. I have not been disappointed; in fact, I couldn't stop reading it. I think it is the best book I have read in a long, long time.

Absolutely a book worth reading. I've enjoyed reading her book and learning more about WWII that I ever thought I knew. Wonderful book.

Being from Miami, I found this book most interesting with the facts of the early Jews of Miami Beach, how they were mis-treated, how they settled into the area, A beautiful love story.
