by A.J.B. Johnston
YOUNGEST CHILD IN A PROMINENT FAMILY, Katharine is shy and unsure of her future. She wants something that feels “true” to her, but has no idea what that is. Becoming someone’s wife—an obvious choice in the early 1900s—holds no appeal.
The First World War brings tragedy, kindling her desire to go overseas to help, but her father refuses permission. Katharine must use her inner strength to insist on pursuing her own goals.
