STRINGS - THE STORY OF HOPE by Patricia Ann Ledford
Traumatic events linger -- like strings tightly binding one’s soul.
While many settlers are fighting the British for their freedom, the O’Connor family is settled peacefully in northeast Tennessee’s new frontier.

This story spans four generations and is set during and after the Revolutionary and Cherokee-American Wars.
WHOSE HOOF IS THAT? By Joe Garrick

OUR HOUR OF NEED by Frank and Nancy Juliano
Legend has it that King Arthur will return in Britain's hour of need. The fall of 1940, with German bombs raining down on London, would seem to be a good time for the 6th Century warrior king to reappear.

We Bought a WWII Bomber - During WWII the US Treasury initiated funding drives to help pay for the war, the largest of which was the "Buy a Bomber" campaign. In 1943, the students of South High School took up the challenge and initiated US War Bond Sales of $375,000 in eight weeks time to buy, name and dedicate a B-17 Bomber. It flew off never to be heard from again until 2015 when an alum found a connection to Meadows of Dan, Virginia.
She Started It All - Nerdy Sandi Howard and jock Joe Jerrad are at odds when their teacher assigns her WWII aircraft, a topic that he wanted, leaving him with WWII US Savings & Bonds. The story unfolds into a surprise twist neither one saw coming binding them in a friendship neither could have imagined.
