Biography

Millys Altman lives in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, located at the foot of the Allegheny Mountains. In the 1890’s, Uniontown was the epicenter of the golden era of the coal and coke industry. The era is noted for its contrast between the grittiness of the coal mines, coke ovens and company towns and the high living of the coal barons in their lavish mansions. Innocent Strangers is a story fabricated from events in a similar fictional town.

At 91, Ms. Altman has lived a full life, so long that she has run out of space to put candles on her birthday cake! After high school, she moved on to graduate from Hood College. When her husband was in the Navy during World War II, she left her teaching job to join him, and she was a camp follower for several years. She returned to Uniontown and, with her husband, raised three sons and has five grandchildren. Ms. Altman is a widow. Innocent Strangers is her second novel.

Maybe this is supposed to be a kids or young adult book but even young people may be a bit too "adult" for some of this. Wish I could recommend it since a story from a female point of view on sports cars and racing makes a good start but this author's"hard work" did not hook me into the story. Too bad.
