Book Summary

I’ve been writing Homefront for several years.   At its essence, it is a story of discovery of self.  Set in the middle years of World War II, Homefront introduces two main characters: 20-year-old, Georgette Lillian Newton from rural North Carolina and a member of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps, and LeRoy Dowdell, an 18-year-old Army enlistee from a small town in Georgia.   We follow these two, young southerners as their dreams and ambitions propel them to join the Army where they meet and fall in love.   Along the way, the reader also meets Private First Class, Pit Turner and his nemesis Staff Sergeant, Robert Moses.  The four cope with the tensions and indignities of a segregated army experience on a base near Tucson, Arizona and, ultimately, find truth and acceptance in their separate acts of courage.
