Imagine it’s 1945. You are waiting for your husbands to return from WW2…and they don’t.
Fast forward to 1949. You work in a mill where you aren’t appreciated. You hate it, and people are beginning to wonder why you don’t remarry and give up the traditionally male jobs you do now that you need to support yourself in the burgeoning after-war economy. They want you to go back to your kitchens, take care of your existing children, remarry, and have more children…the American way.
But what if you don’t want that traditional way of life? What if you have fallen in love with another woman and wish to make a new life with her?
Marion Whiting and Barbara Jenkins are two such women. They are stuck in dead-end jobs in a mill, sharing a life they believe no one would understand…and each other. After finding an ad in the local newspaper, they decide to give up everything for a dream. They take their children and go. But the work involved in creating their dream just might quash the dream, their relationship, and the life they are building together. How can two women alone with their children on a secluded island make it all work?
On my website, as they become available in the various distributors, they are listed here:
Molly didn’t know what kind of life to expect when she fell in love with Erin Herriot—her schoolmate, her best friend, and a woman. She had been grateful for Erin’s friendship when the bank swindled her after selling her parents’ farm and she was invited to live on Erin’s parents’ farm.
After making the difficult decision to live life as ‘man and wife,’ Molly gladly accepted the challenges before them. Together, they made the decision to sell Erin’s farm and embark on the journey of a lifetime…on the Oregon Trail.
Erin couldn’t give Molly children; however, she could love her forever. But leaving the area where they had both grown up and where everyone knew the women was the only way they could be together without questions about the true nature of their relationship.
Come along on their adventure as two women cross the country, adopt a family, and begin a life that neither had imagined possible growing up in the mid-1800s.

I thought this was a great story and I highly recommend it. There is a really interesting story line that sucks you right in. The author did a great job developing the characters and you feel like you get to know everyone while you are rooting for them all to overcome the obstacles that they face in order to survive. This was a well written book that doesn’t follow a standard plot line. There are plenty of shocks and surprises along the way. I really liked both of the two main characters who were good people without being perfect.
Ever wonder what will happen if the world finally does go crazy? K’Anne does a good job giving us an idea! Jodi and Krista just wanted a place to go for peace and quiet. They always hoped that’s what their cabin in the woods would be, a refuge to decompress from the rat race. Little did they know that one day the cabin would become their castle!
I really liked this story and the thought K’Anne put into it! If you want to read a book that you won’t want to put down, start reading Survivors now! It’s well written and well edited! A really good read!
