I’ve been lucky. Years ago, I wanted to live on a farm, and my husband said “Let’s do it.” When personal computers were introduced, I wanted to know about them and have one, and lucky me, the school where I taught offered a course in Basic. When we bought our first computer, I discovered the writer’s best friend--word processing. (Before that, I could not write without crossing out most of a typewritten or handwritten page, and progress seemed impossible.)

Finally, there are maps to guide a reader’s understanding of the town of Winkler, the setting for the Mountain Women Series. The newest map created by Ken Kreider shows Winkler in its heyday as a sawmill town, circa 1900. If you’ve read The Girl on the Mountain, notice the railroad track on the left that led to her mountain cabin. That track represents the road that brought logs down from the c...

“Still stands the forest primeval; but far away from its shadow,
Side by side, in their nameless graves, the lovers are sleeping.
Under the humble walls of the little catholic churchyard,
In the heart of the city, they lie, unknown and unnoticed;
Daily the tides of life go ebbing and flowing beside them,
Thousands of throbbing hearts, where theirs are at rest and forever,
Thousands of aching brains, where theirs no longer are busy,
Thousands of toiling hands, where theirs have ceased from their labors,
Thousands of weary feet, where theirs have completed their journey!”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie
