The daughter of a powerful industrialist seeks to live on her own terms in this entertaining portrait of the American home front during World War II

Polly Fulton, the daughter of one of America’s most successful and admired businessmen, lives with her parents and brother in a thirty-room apartment on New York City’s Park Avenue. Yet she despises the superficial trappings of wealth and delights in defying convention. In the months before America enters World War II, she shocks her family and friends by dumping her longtime boyfriend, Bob Tasmin, and marrying radical journalist Tom Brett.
As the war rages on the other side of the globe and dominates the thoughts of everyone at home, Polly comes to realize that she acted out of pride and contrariness, not love. But with Bob stationed in Guam, it may be too late to correct her terrible mistake.
A richly detailed, elegantly crafted tale about the search for happiness in the chaos of wartime, *B.F.’s Daughter *is one of John P. Marquand’s warmest and most empathetic novels.
