Winter Homecoming, Inspired by Real Life Heroine

Do you enjoy stories which are inspired by real people?

Winter Homecoming

Winter Homecoming was inspired by a real life twentieth century heroine in my hometown. She was called the “Angel in Snowshoes.” To read about Dr. Kate Newcomb, drop by my previous blog post.

Here’s more about my story~

Catching a freight train out of Chicago is no way to spend Christmas Day.

The Depression has cost Will Gustafson his classy wife, executive job and high society life. Now he’s heading home to the northwoods to face deserved “I told you so’s.” On the freight train a homeless little boy attaches himself to Will like a lost puppy. On the day ”after Christmas in her Model T, Cass Newton picks up Will and the boy and takes them home. Is she crazy? But a new widow, she needs a handyman to help her weather the winter in her isolated cabin. She’s concealed her “delicate” condition from everyone but can’t deceive Will.  He fights his growing attraction to this good but stubborn woman—so unlike the wife who divorced him. The three become an unlikely “family.” Yet what will happen when the snow melts and their secrets are revealed?

Right now I am living in the wintry northwoods. I’m just glad I have a good furnace. I love to sit by the fire but glad I don’t have to feed it 24/7 like my characters, Will and Cass. Hope you’re all keeping warm this bizarre winter!–Lyn
