In this series, you meet the Montgomery Family, a fun group of characters. All four volumes are set in 1950. Summer Breeze is told from the perspective of Veronica, who lives in California and works for Burns and Allen as they transition from radio to television. Much of the book is set in Indianapolis where the sisters grew up and most of the family resides. Autumn Leaves is narrated by Leslie, the oldest of the Montgomery girls. Volumes 3 and 4, about Meg and Isabella respectively, will be released in 2019. The books are arranged in chronological order and the family stories are intertwined throughout each one. One of my goals is to make sure the books are historically accurate. While I do create various restaurants, homes and other places, if I discuss a real place, the information is all true. If  show is on television or radio, or a baseball game or some other event takes place, it truly happened that day in history. Each sister is dealing with a particular issue currently in their life throughout the series.
