Can't a girl get a break?
Betty’s heart has been broken once and shattered again in the last seven years. She never thought that she would make after her highschool sweetheart left for Detroit to work in the factories, but with the help of work and reading, she got herself together.
In the summer of 43, she met a young soldier named Joe Malcolm. Betty and Joe fell quickly in love and he proposed to her christmas morning of 1944. Joe’s body was sent home from Europe and was buried on August 21, 1945.
