A unique perspective on the shattering events of World War II as seen by women isolated in the loneliness of their flesh and a sadness that will never come undone, their lives forever changed by being “outside of history.” No longer even existing inMoreA unique perspective on the shattering events of World War II as seen by women isolated in the loneliness of their flesh and a sadness that will never come undone, their lives forever changed by being “outside of history.” No longer even existing in the same time frame as the men they love, they pull themselves through that emptiness, inevitably changing the culture in which they were “born and bred.” The voices of four women and a child come to life in this story of the south where African-American domestic servants begin to find more fulfilling employment and the women who depended on them as they had depended on their men necessarily learn to “do without.” The women’s strength grows and, without the men to lay down the law, neither the dark- or light-skinned children lose their sense that they have more or less equal chances to win or lose in their games of life.

From the first dreadful newscast describing Pearl Harbor and the inevitable declaration of war to the final sunrise on an August day after the dropping of the atom bomb at Hiroshima their lives are held together by apparently unchanging rituals but no one among them will ever be the same.
