About Ella’s War:

It’s 1943 on the American home front, and Ella’s pent-up, common-law husband finally decides to leave their farm and enlist. Ella must either depart their town in coastal Delaware to pursue other dreams inland or try to save their farm. And their grade-school son, Reese, won’t budge. When an officer from a surrendered German submarine is sent to her as part of POW farm labor, can Ella embrace the help in order to survive? And what happens when Dieter becomes more than a hand to her, amidst prying eyes?
