The function of history is to illuminate the present though the past.
W. Durant (1944)
Endless dates ... dry facts ... dead people.
Or is it?
History is about people. Real people who lived ... loved ... hated ... dreamed ... schemed ... won and lost.
The goal of Historical Fiction is to take "dry" facts, "boring" dates and "now-dead" people of the past and bring them all back to life.
Real people molded history and then passed it on for us to make tomorrow's history.
Visit the past through Butternut Tears... live with the Maxwells ... feel their fears and struggles. Weep when they weep and rejoice when they rejoice.
