By Laurie Marr-Wasmund. Paperback. Fiction - Historical. Colorado Author. Book 1 of the Whit Winter Trilogy. 1917: In a world at war, three young, Irish-Americans grapple with questions of love, faith, and the very nature of the human heart. Trapped in a meaningless job, Kathleen O’Doherty volunteers as a Red Cross relief worker in order to pursue her passion: sketching. In France, her vision is shaped by the two men who love her--and by the knowledge of how easily love can be lost in a dangerous and violent world. Kathleen’s cousin, Sean Sullivan, enlists in the American Expeditionary Force to escape from his father’s tyranny. Doubted by his comrades, he struggles to balance his deep faith with the horrors he encounters as a soldier in the trenches near Verdun. At home in Colorado, Sean’s sister, Maggie, marries the man she has always loved. Yet his resistance to the war effort threatens to take from Maggie everything she has ever wanted--including her husband. Rich in period detail, this first book in the White Winter Trilogy chronicles the beginning of a journey through a ravaged and fear-filled world toward hope, tolerance, and an understanding of the human condition.
