When it was our War: A Soldier’s Wife on the Home Front

By

A sequel to The Jew Store (1998), this chatty and delightful memoir, filled with authentic period detail, chronicles the life of a small-town Southern Jewish war bride and her adventures on the home front. Beginning in 1939, it follows her life down to the present day (she’s still happily married).
