We met Amy Mary Theresa O’Brien Garret in SUGAR TIME. Her husband, Wally, left to join the Seabees, a branch of the Navy. He expected Amy to manage their small farm along with their daughters, Sissy and Beth Ann and her foster daughter, Shirley Temple.
Amy survives the attack by Mrs. Warwick, a German spy. When Amy learns Wally, her husband, is AWOL from the Navy she is determined to find him. She plans to buy his share of the farm. Amy is in love with Captain Rob Weeks and she needs Wally’s signature on an application to the catholic bishop to get her marriage annulled.
BEYOND SUGAR TIME continues the life of Amy Mary Theresa O’Brien Garret and her family. “I should have known,” Rob murmured as he kissed me. I heard the train come hissing into the station. I tore myself away from Rob and ran to the train. My journey begins.”
