Three of our best authors work together to give us three books that follow the occupants of one house from the time of Victoria. So we get a look at history in Victorian times, at the time of the suffragettes and during the Blitz in World War II. Three good storytellers give us three enticing tastes of the past. Lizzie's Wish is followed by Polly's March & Josie Under Fire.

Itís 1893 and Cissy is on her way across America to start a new life in an as yet unbuilt new town on the Oklahoma prairie. This is a rip-roaring story, full of action, mood changes and more as the new settlers try to find a way to make the train stop at their town. A great story, told with passion and panache.
