    DescriptionIn the early years of the 1940s, as the nation's young men ship off to combat, a city springs up, seemingly overnight in the fields of Oklahoma: the Van Damme airplane factory, a gargantuan complex dedicated to the construction of the necessary machinery of warfare. Laborers--mostly women--flock to this place, enticed by the opportunity to be something more than wife and homemaker. For Vi, fleeing a dying ranch; for Connie, following an unfaithful husband; for Diane, leaving behind the hot music and soldier boys to pursue something different, adult, and real; their journeys will be liberating in ways they couldn't previously imagine, and it will lead each of them to Prosper Olander--disabled artist, forger, friend, lover, and the true heart and soul of the temporary city--who will change their lives in profound and unexpected ways.

    Review quote
    ""Four Freedoms".perfectly captures an era--WWII America--when the chosen are overseas and the left-behind are granted a rare moment of possibility. Crowley's extraordinary characters and the poignant, funny, disturbing ways they find to connect with one another make you wish this war would never end."--San Francisco Chronicle, Top-Shelf Fiction Pick
