Ration of Dreams by Rhonda Geraci
Being female means 15-year-old Delores Meloney can never be a soldier, despite the fact she’s the best shot in the county. She hopes to become a nurse and a Southern Lady like the town matriarch, Lady Billings is grooming her to be. However, she’s derailed by a chance encounter with the hobo, Bo Marks. Over time, the ties between them become enmeshed in prejudice and fear as small-town secrets and the mystery behind a U-boat bombing off the coast of Georgia unfold. Ration of Dreams is a whose-the-enemy, WWII epic that explores our roots and how they grow once exposed to light.
