The Emmy award winning Brides on the Homefront celebrates the simple and courageous stories of three American women who fell in love during the terrifying and unstable years of World War II.
In 1941 Ruth, LuRae and Zola were three ordinary American high school students. They dreamed of prom dates, college degrees, coed snowball fights and beautiful wedding dresses. They had never even heard of Pearl Harbor. With America's entry into World War II, they joined a generation that set aside hopes and plans to help their nation win the war.
LuRae was told she doesn't have enough ration coupons to make a wedding cake; Zola realized all the best young men were being killed and prepared herself for the life of a spinster; Ruth faced the fear of raising a fatherless child. Ultimately, the women's struggles generated within them fierce endurance, love, and gratitude characterized by so many in this significant generation.
Brides on the Homefront is a penetrating look into inspiring, true stories that remind us that even though life may be full of tragedy, we have the power to make our own happy endings.
