Tood, Weetsie, and Sybill are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. Deciding they belong on the cover of Life Magazine he assigns Kate Miller to the story. Though she views doing a “women’s piece” as a career set-back, she accepts because it’s her first cover story. Kate’s haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her personal conflicts. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.
