From a predestined meeting at a church social dance to a courtship and a star-crossed romance, we follow the Marlow family through good times and bad, from the very highest and most exciting periods to the very depths of despair and out again into the sunshine and the promise of a new day and a new life to apply oneself to while honoring the past and those left behind. We watch as fate, faith and uncanny circumstance play in and out of the lives of some very compelling and most intriguing characters.
History sweeps through the story like a juggernaut and turns lives upside down as our players are swept along though depression, into recovery and then into a world war, exceedingly difficult and yet in the same moment very liberating times that turn to opportunity for those willing to see it and understand how to exploit it. The family finds much angst, adversity and downright heartbreak along with loss and hard earned redemption... through all this, our family and the supporting characters find the opportunities hidden in the carefully crafted story line that carries the reader to an unpredictable yet delightful finish.
It is all set in an America that has been forever lost. A time that we can never return too... except in faded photographs, old memories and stories like this one.
