    Gadsden, Alabama, 1943. World War II rages on three continents, far from the small Southern community of Gadsden.

He begins a torrid affair with Sylvia Barnes, a beautiful, lonely woman married to an abusive alcoholic. When the affair is discovered, Sylvia flees Gadsden in mortification, leaving John devastated. The war offers a chance to escape his misery, and John leaves high school to join the Army Air Corps and serve in the Pacific on a B-29 crew.

But the fight for the love of his life has just begun ...
