The old cliché', 'All is fair in love and war', does not hold true for Bea Meade in A War of Her Own. Nothing was ever fair for Meade when it pertained to life, love, or war in this gripping historical fiction.

A War of Her Own

 A War of Her Own is a compelling World War II historical novel, set in Orange, Texas, in 1943, about a Texas version of Rosie the Riveter in search of happiness.

In the summer of 1943, Orange, Texas, is a sleepy little town overrun with tens of thousands of new workers. With jobs galore at the wartime shipyards, the workers are rich with cash and looking for a good time.

 

Bea Meade, mother of an infant son, finds her life shattered when her philandering husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. To make ends meet, Bea takes a job at a shipyard as a riveter. Meanwhile, she searches for the love missing in her life.

 

Life is good for everyone in Orange--except Bea, who has to fight her own battles against a no-good husband, the prejudice facing women in the workplace, and the mysteries of her own past.

 

Bea's journey to discover who she really is, a vibrant woman of her times, serves up an entertaining story of the World War II homefront you'll remember long after the final pages.


Excerpt

But the morning’s peaceful calm belied the panic Marie felt as trickles of warm blood ran down the inside of her thighs.

Clutching a gray wool sweater tighter against the cold air, she fled down the back
steps of the old homestead toward the outhouse, ducking behind a large bush when Mama grabbed a chicken, skillfully wrung its neck, and headed back to the house. Hopefully, she wouldn’t notice the
once virgin snow now stained with Marie’s tainted blood. If Mama saw it, maybe she’d think the red drops came from the sacrificial chicken. For Mama, a devout Pentecostal, it wasn’t Sunday without
church and a fried chicken dinner.
