The chapter covers Ann’s return to the United States and her difficulty adjusting to “normal life” after living in a war-torn country for nearly three years. Discussed are Ann’s insecurities over her physical appearance and her initial attempts to renew her career as a freelance artist, starting with a starring role in Republic’s Flame of Barbary Coast opposite John Wayne. Also included are Ann and Leslie’s views of the American home front during the war. Finally, the chapter discusses the dissolution of the Fenton marriage, which ended in divorce two years after they initially split up.
