Heartaches by the number
Karleen is just a kid; a beautiful, sexy, kid -- but still, just a kid. Then she meets up again with Tom. Tom, his brother Joe, and Karleen all went to school together. A lot has happened since then.
Tom is a car mechanic and races motorcycles. Joe has just returned from WW II and is an Army Air Corps officer candidate. Karleen is a hoochie-koochie girl at the county fair -- just through the summer -- who starts college in the fall.
Karleen looks outside and sees Tom waiting in line for his private séance with 'Virgin Karleen'. "I cannot tell your fortune, Thomas…" she tells him. Instead, she gives Tom a secret message to pass along to his brother Joe: 'Meet me behind the tent after the show'.
Karleen imagines romance, travel, and maybe a child or two as the wife of a WW II veteran and USAF officer! What she gets is life in a trailer on a dirt-poor upstate New York farm.
Violence, infidelity and even murder await this new family trio. And through it all Tom patiently waits for his chance for romance with the lovely 'Virgin Karleen'.
Jack Teeter knows how to craft a great story!
