The characters of Parmeter's book The Last Tear Drop are continued in this epic story of the home front during WW II and those who made it happen. It is a stand alone vel yet the familiar writing style comes to life and puts you in that time waiting to turn the page to see and feel the characters come to life. The story is about a youth growing up in a small southern town during the turbulent and trying years of World War II. The strains of Remember Pearl Harbor echo in the air as the story unfolds with a close-knit American sprit united in a common cause. Lumberton takes you back in time to the making of the world's greatest generation. It was the pivotal time in our nation's history. In 1941, we were just emerging from the great depression and entering into the uncharted waters of a Second World War. It was a significant period in the shaping our great nation. Not since this era has our nation worked together in the unparalleled effort of a national union of spirit. We turned to our youth to carry the heaviest burden of all to fight our enemies in their territory. The setting of the greatest American generation has yet to be duplicated in any war or national emergency. This was the time of heroes, patriotism, God, and country that has never been equaled. Lumberton puts you in the breadbasket of the making of our nation.
