    Summary

    The mothers of soldiers at the front of war fight the battle at home, but staying strong can sometimes feel like a battle lost when home is gone and scant news comes. "Be strong, be brave" one mother says while another prays "one more day." "Be like them," or "keep your head down," the experiences of motherhood echo over dividing lines.

    Summary

    Winifred nods, a small knot of fear wending its way into her heart. He’s so…fixated on the Rogers boy. She swallows around the lump in her throat. Bucky is a good boy from an upstanding Christian family. He’s not like that. It isn’t possible - they’re raising him properly.
    He’s just a confused little boy. He likes sports, and playing soldiers and cowboys with the other boys. He says all his prayers, memorized the Pater Noster, Ave Maria, and Gloria Patri, and he goes to catechism twice a week. And he’s bright, good with numbers like his father. He doesn’t try to play with his sisters’ dolls or dresses. He isn’t one of them. He can’t be.

     

    Five times Winifred Barnes suspected her son was one of those sort, one time she knew for sure, and one more time.
