From the depression to the final days of World War II, Tales of the Wide-A-Wake Cafi tells the story of a group of women who, by staying home to fight the war, changed America forever. The story begins in the Wide-A-Wake Cafi, a tiny eatery at the intersection of Highway 77 and the famous Route 66, in Edmond, Oklahoma. The women working there didn't become famous, but their lives were anything but ordinary. Their stories crackle with passion, commitment, and real life. Janice, Clara, Cynthia, Tina, and the others are the women of the greatest generation in American history, and this is the story of what they did, and how they lived when war changed everything about their lives. Their loves and heartbreaks, successes, failures, fears and triumphs are chronicled in Tales with authenticity and an artist's understanding heart. Every page, every detail, every line of dialogue rings true and inspires in the reader their own commitment and emotion. If you're ready to believe, really believe in the characters you're reading about, to care about their lives and what happens to them, this is your book. You will never forget these women and how they make you feel.
