    It’s 1943 and WW II is a part of everyday life. Beautiful Amy Mary O’Brien Garret’s marriage to Wally is eight years old. He buys a farm, dumps her and their two girls, Sissy and Beth, and goes off to join the Seabees where he’s stationed in the Aleutian Islands.

    Old Doc Weeks, the previous owner, helps Amy and teaches her how to use a shotgun and milk a cow.

    Amy is desperate for money to meet the monthly payments on the farm and support her family. She discovers a secret room off the master room closet. She finds rationed goods and decides to sell them on the black market.

    Aunt Magdalene manages the Jupiter Junction railroad hotel. It’s during a train derailment that Amy meets good looking U.S. Army Lieutenant Rob Weeks. He falls in love with her, but she resists. Or does she?

    A young teacher is murdered and soon Amy is being threatened. Is her farm alive with promises of a new life, or is it the menace of an unseen force? Still, she manages to protect her children from danger until one fateful day.
