The Steadman family leaves behind the grime of Depression-era Seattle for the purity of country life in Woodinville, but shadows follow.
You will meet memorable characters from Brian Pelton's premiere novel, "None Wasted - None Spared", spread throughout this satisfying story of reclamation and rebirth in the face of hard times. There is Jimmy Burns the visionary whose name is given to the road where stakes are driven, the Devoras and the Fords, and Roy James whose interest in the Steadmans is as self-serving as it is generous. Some brighten the way while others, like Max Ridenour, darken it. And finally there's Irene Hewitt the willowy and haunted "farm girl" who rivals Vera Steadman for the affection of her son, Jack.
It's the scorching summer of 1933 and FDR is newly in the White House. It is also when the Steadmans, along with the Nation, hammer out their futures at the heated forge of those times.
