"Once again, Marnie Pehrson adeptly whisks her readers into the past, providing escape through this delightful romantic adventure!" -- Marcia Lynn McClure, author, www.MarciaLynnMcClure.com, May 2005
From the Author
This historical fiction novel is written with love for the town I grew up in, Daisy, Tennessee, and for the people of that community. While the primary characters of this story are purely fictional, several of the secondary characters are my relatives who were born and raised in Daisy. Within the pages, youll find my father, Jack Morton, as a child and my great aunt Thadda Springfield Moody as a young woman. Youll read about my pioneering grandparents, Sherman and Edna Morton, and my great-grandmother Maude Springfield.
Two other characters you will meet in this story are Francis "Fanny" Snodgrass and her sister Lillian Karrick. These two remarkable ladies are real women who kept the LDS Church going in the Chattanooga area during volatile times when the branch vacillated between a small branch to a Sunday school and back. When the lack of priesthood leadership persisted, LDS Church leaders considered dissolving the little unit completely, but Sisters Snodgrass and Karrick stepped forward and kept it going. Through their pioneer efforts the large geographic area covered by their tiny group has rolled forth like a stone cut out of the mountain without hands into the Chattanooga, Tennessee Stake of Zion with thousands of strong and valiant members.
This work is a tribute to their vision and to the faithfulness of all those early members of the Church who traveled thirty to fifty miles just to attend church on Sunday. It is a tribute to my forebears who embraced the restored gospel in the 1960s and 1970s and to the home of their youth.
I hope you enjoy this work as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing it!
