Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A visual novel traces a World War II love story as narrated through an impulsive new bride's array of vintage postcards, newspaper clippings, photographs, and other historical memorabilia.
Lila Jerome has never been very lucky in love. She has always been more interested in studying architecture and, more recently, supporting the war bond effort on the home front. But in the fall of 1943, a chance spark with a boarder in her apartment sets Lila on a course that shakes up all her ideas about romance. Lila is intoxicated by Perry Weld, the charismatic army engineer who's about to ship out to the European front, and it isn't too long before she discovers that the feeling is mutual. After just a few weeks together, caught up in the dramatic spirit of the times and with Perry's departure date fast approaching, the two decide to elope. In a stunning kaleidoscope of vibrant ephemera, Lila boldly attempts to redefine her life in America as she navigates the heartache and longing of a marriage separated by an ocean and a war.
