by Laurel G. Lacy
An epic western romance in the finest of traditions, On Our Way to Tomorrow focuses on one determined woman, Anne Appleton, and the huge extended family she creates through her generous and loving nature.
Beginning with her parents’ death during a fateful trip to settle in the Northwest Territory, Laurel G. Lacy traces Anne’s trials as she struggles to make a home for her young brother and herself. In doing so, she comes across myriad personalities, many of whom she takes under her wing as part of her life.
As it often occurred during the settling of the once wild west, Anne’s family grows by leaps and bounds as her children and her children’s children marry friends of the family and distant relations of one sort or another and the families holdings grow at an exponential rate to their increasing size.
With nostalgic detail and unexpected twists, On Our Way to Tomorrow takes its place on the shelves of the great western romance.
