"I hope this letter gets to you quickly. We are always waiting, aren't we? Perhaps the greatest gift this war has given us is the anticipation…"

It's January 1943 when Rita Vincenzo receives her first letter from Glory Whitehall. Glory is an effervescent young mother, impulsive and free as a bird. Rita is a sensible professor's wife with a love of gardening and a generous, old soul. Glory comes from New England society; Rita lives in Iowa, trying to make ends meet. They have nothing in common except one powerful bond: the men they love are fighting in a war a world away from home.

Brought together by an unlikely twist of fate, Glory and Rita begin a remarkable correspondence. The friendship forged by their letters allows them to survive the loneliness and uncertainty of waiting on the home front, and gives them the courage to face the battles raging in their very own backyards. Connected across the country by the lifeline of the written word, each woman finds her life profoundly altered by the other's unwavering support.

A collaboration of two authors whose own beautiful story mirrors that on the page, Home Front Girls is a deeply moving union of style and charm. Filled with unforgettable characters and grace, it is a timeless celebration of friendship and the strength and solidarity of women. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engaging, charming, and moving, a beautifully rendered exploration of WWII on the homefront and the type of friendship that helps us survive all manner of battles.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Readers of Hayes and Nyhan’s entertaining epistolary novel will be transported to 1940s America, when people on the homefront watched, waited, and worried about loved ones fighting overseas…Authentic touches bring the era alive…timeless and universal passages and struggles as birth, death, grief, wartime temptations, divided loyalties, and hope. Interspersed is correspondence with the men in service, adding layers to Hayes and Nyhan’s deeply satisfying tale.”

    Booklist

  • “A wonderful affirmation of the life-enhancing potential of female friendship.”

    Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldier’s Wife
