The Cover of Life

1 Male, 6 Female

R T Robinson Price: $9.99

Tood, Weetsie and Sybill are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943

Each married a Cliffert brother

The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce

He decides that they belong on the cover Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story

Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face to face with her own powerlessness in a man's world

Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth
