December 7, 1941...
Pearl Harbor is attacked, and three young women take jobs in industry. Before the war ends, one will lose a nephew to combat, one will receive a mysterious inheritance, and one will refuse a marriage proposal after admitting that she's never been attracted to men. They'll forge lifelong bonds and discover a shared past. When the war ends, they'll reject aprons and heels for a candle making business, only to have it burned by an arsonist for reasons they cannot fathom.
Was is a story of strong female friendship, sexual discovery and long-held secrets, set in the 1940s as the seeds of the civil rights and feminist movements are sown -- along with victory gardens. It's fiction inspired by the real lives of "Rosies" who came of age during WWII. As the women in Wax struggle to break their mothers' molds, they ultimately find happiness through self awareness and acceptance.
Early praise for Wax
âTherese Smith gives an insightful portrait of a lost era--of the sudden sense of obligation and individual freedom that came to the women who worked in the shipyards in World War II. This book is significant historically, but it will also please readers with its likable characters, who find their own alternative America in their newfound responsibility and allegiance--not just to saving democracy but to saving themselves and each other.â
-- James Tipton, bestselling author of "Annette Vallon, A Novel of the French Revolution"
âWith its engaging characters and intriguing secrets, in Wax, a charming WWII coming of age novel, Therese Ambrosi Smith has created a loving valentine to Rosie the Riveter and skillfully whisks the reader away on a journey to a time when everything seemed possible. A promising debut.â
-- Kris Neri, Lefty Award-nominated author of "Revenge for Old Times' Sake"
"After reading something wonderful you just feel like you should share it with EVERYONE. That's how I felt after reading Therese Ambrosi Smith's Wax. Smith pens this tale with the greatest finesse and a delicate hand. The story of Tilly Bettencourt, one of the many women who held the U.S. together during World War II when the country was stripped of its men, is one that will make you laugh, cry, get angry but by the end, you'll feel like you've won just for having read the story. Wax is a must-read."
-- Susan Wingate (award-winning author of "Drowning" and the "Bobby's Diner" series)
