It has been almost a year since we’ve written on our blog! Unbelievable. And if anyone used to read or care at all for our musings, I (Judy) apologize. My excuse is that I’m old and have run out of words. But Julie, who is even older than I by a few months, has been busy writing her second book, and with words to spare! Her book is called The Women on the Porch and shares the stories of five women in the Great Depression in Washington state, all from different backgrounds and experiences, suffering from tuberculosis. You will come to love these women as friends and you’ll care what happens to each of them in their struggles and frustrations. The book is available through Amazon and I highly recommend it to all who love good historical fiction based on true stories from the past.
The picture below shows the tuberculosis sanitarium renovated and now masquerading as a retirement center. But in the 1940's it housed the women on the porch. Look for the book and the ebook on Amazon!
