Despite the distance between them, Veronica Marsh has fallen in love with Johnny Hall who has been fighting in the Pacific. After receiving an early discharge, he comes walking up her farm lane one warm July evening in 1944, and her future is set.For Veronica's best friend, Elizabeth Bittner, however, the future is about to become quite unsettled. Dissatisfied with her contributions to the war effort at home, she intends to join the Women's Army Corps, much to her parents' dismay.The invasion of Fortress Europe is well underway, but the campaign in the Pacific remains uncertain. Veronica's brother, Buck, however, will not be part of the fighting. Used up as a combat Marine, Buck will be transferred to duty in Hawaii, where his path will cross Elizabeth's ever so briefly.In May of 1945, victory in Europe is declared, but there is not a great deal of celebration as the end of the war in the Pacific is nowhere in sight. In fact, one week after VE Day, the 7th War Bond Drive is launched. Victory over Japan finally occurs in August, however, and now Marsh Point and all of America celebrate long into the night.For the young men and women of Marsh Point, who have spent virtually their entire youth contributing to the war effort, it is now time to get on with their lives.The years march by like soldiers on parade until only one member of Marsh Point's greatest generation is left.
