Island of Sweet Pies and Soldiers
Hawaii, 1944. Violet Iverson and her young daughter, Ella, are piecing their lives together one year after the disappearance of her husband. Violet bands together with her close friends to get through the difficult days. To support themselves, they open a pie stand near the military base. Try as she might, Violet can't ignore her attraction to the brash marine who comes to her aid when the women are accused of spying. Desperate to discover the truth behind what happened to her husband, Violet is torn by guilt, fear, and longing as she faces losing everything. Again. A poignant debut.
