B. L. Dowery wrote this book thirty years ago and set it aside while she pursued a legal career. Dowery received a BA degree in history and government from Saint Augustines College. In 1972, she enrolled in law school at the University of Santa Clara. She retired after working thirty years for the State of New York as an assistant district attorney, a defense attorney, and a city court judge. Dowery is an avid reader of historical nonfiction and biographies. The idea for this novel came after a conversation with her grandmother concerning family history. Dowery hopes to continue the saga into the periods before and after WWII.(2010, paperback, 270 pages)
