It's 1944 and Wink Dutton, a former illustrator for Stars and Stripes, has returned to Chicago after an injury to his drawing hand gets him an unwanted discharge from the service. Renting a room in the back of the camera shop run by Sal Chesterton--the wife of one of Wink's buddies still stationed in the Philippines--Wink is surprised to learn how Sal is making ends meet: producing pinup photos for the soldiers' favorite girlie magazines. In fact, she's using herself as a model. When Wink becomes a partner in her covert enterprise, it's the beginning of an unspoken romance that manages to be both sexy and innocent--a romance that grows and deepens as the two discover in themselves and each other a kind of ingenious practicality that readies them, together, for a rapidly changing postwar world.

Easy to read, engaging story of a young wife struggling to keep a business going while her husband is away at war, and the tricks she turns to in order to make ends meet.
