World War Two changed the lives of every GI who went into battle, but Private Paulsen’s post-war transformation proved wildly more dramatic.
After undergoing one of the world’s first “sex change” operations in Europe, the Private returns home with a splash… and a brand new identity.

When Pearl meets up once again with George, the soldier she fought beside at Normandy, will the sparks they'd suppressed during the war return? Now that Pearl has the body she’s always wanted, can love bloom between the two?
