Power of a Single Working WWII Widow to Provide For Her Child

Terra Alta WV _ A stirring novel, the third in the series with The Crossings and The Indian by multi award-winning author Barry Kienzle.  Set in the aftermath of WWII, Maggie deals with her ongoing grief following the death of her WWII pilot husband and embarks on a cross-country trip to free herself emotionally and begin a new life with an incredibly challenging job.
