Filled with warmth, wit and wisdom, 'The Future Homemakers of America' takes us to the heart of female friendship. A novel fans of 'Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood' will not be able to resist. Norfolk,1953. The Fens have never seen anything quite like the girls from USAF Drampton. Overpaid, overfed and over here. While their men patrol the skies keeping the Soviets at bay, some are content to live the life of the Future Homemakers of America - clipping coupons, cooking chicken pot pie - but other start to stray, looking for a little native excitement beyond the perimeter fence.

A delightful first-person description of the lives of mid-century USAF wives and their children while posted in post-war England and their return to the US. The frustration of 'following' and being perfect officer's wives and mothers plays out differently for every family, including the culture shock of transition to civilian lives or the end of a marriage or death.

Love this book like I love all of her books. The characters were great - the story was corny and sweet but the women characters showed such strength and resilience. 4.5/5

Back Cover Blurb:
In 1952, six women meet at the US Drampton Air Force Base in rural Norfolk, England. The sextet of military wives have in common husbands flying F-84s to keep the Ruskies at bay. Five Americans (Betty Gillis, Lois Moon, Gayle Jackson, Audrey Rudman and Betty Dewey) and the native (Kath Pharoah) are bored with nothing to do and frightened that their spouse might not make it home this time. In their respective hometowns these females would not give any of the others the time of day, but here at Drampton a bond of friendship forms.
Over the next four decades, though they each go their seperate ways, their friendship remains intact. They share the elation of triumphs and the agony of defeats. Divorce, death and children not in that order enter the equation, but the sextet stays in touch as they age differently. ( )

Laurie Graham writes a great book! Set during the 1950's a story of 4 women, their friendship, their lives, their laughs and their struggles. At times this story had me laughing out loud, at other's I couldn't put it down because all I wanted was find out what happened. These women came right out off the page for me. If you like a story about everyday life in it's full blown glory, read this book. ( )
