The Officer’s House is the story of two young army wives, two very different Americas, and the man they both love. In 2009, Emily’s marriage is falling apart. When her husband leaves for Afghanistan, she takes a job in History House Museum at Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook, New Jersey; Betty, in 1945, an officer’s wife who lives with her family at Fort Hancock, becomes more and more distressed as WWII draws to a close. It’s the story of History House and what happens out on the desolate end of Sandy Hook.
