The Golden Age

(A book in the Romancing the Weavers series)
An omnibus of novels by

America in the mid-1890s was in the thrall of its most prosperous time yet. Millions were being made on new inventions like electric lights and the telephone, and the expansion of the railroads was tying the country closer together.

But prosperity wasn’t reaching everyone – laborers were still living and working in abject poverty and began forming unions to get their piece of the pie. Feuds developed between families in the hinterlands and (like the Hatfields and McCoys) sometimes turned violent. And the remnants of America’s First Nations were still marginalized as “Indians” and suffering at the hands of white men.

In the Far Northwest, the growing Weaver family was riding the wave of prosperity, taking advantage of the railroad to send fruit, dairy products and their other commodities all over the region. But they aren’t untouched by the more challenging changes in the culture, as they find their traditional isolation thirty miles from the nearest town disappearing. And with the family’s younguns growing into men and women, they aren’t untouched by romance either.

This box set includes three of the Weaver children’s stories, covering the whole range of human emotion and historical upheaval:

SEBASTIAN – Sebastian had always been treated as a Weaver, despite being the result of an assault on his mother before she married into the family. Still, he felt different, and wasn’t sure how to handle it. Until an accident while searching for a lost cow lands him in the middle of a band of wandering natives and the pretty squaw who rescues him may be the missing piece he’s looking for.

TRULY – Sebastian’s sister Truly thinks she’s found the love of her life. The fellow she’s found, Alex Smith, thinks she’s the love of his. Unfortunately, the Weavers and Smiths have been bitter enemies for years, ever since Alex’s brother tried to rape Truly’s aunt and died in the attempt. With both families opposed to the relationship, it might take an effort of Shakespearean proportions to make it happen!

ESTHER – She never meant to become a headache for her family, but Esther Weaver’s fascination with progressive politics is driving them batty – and making her parents wonder if she’ll ever find a husband. Then “famed orator of the East” Marshall Meagher comes to town and gets knocked cold when someone objects to his views. Could the traveling speaker-turned-patient be what she’s looking for … or will his darkest secret send her running?
