This book is the third in The Green Mountain Dream Trilogy. It hinges largely on the events of the two previous books, No Permission Needed and The Widow Maker. The book's setting is the 1920's, 30's and 40's in Central Vermont and much of what happens in the book is greatly affected by the historical events of those years. The story is told by Abrianna, daughter of a northern-Italian stonecutter who worked in the granite sheds of Barre, Vermont. Abrianna is an artist, whose ambition is to immerse herself in her painting and to escape the narrow but secure confines of the Italian community she grew up in. Her plans to go to college, however, are derailed and she finds herself unexpectedly trapped in Barre. Can she overcome this setback and still pursue her dream to paint? How will her goals be affected by her attraction to a mysterious young man from the nearby town of Chelsea? Could their growing relationship with a Native-American family in Chelsea affect both of them in ways they could never have anticipated and can barely make sense of? And how will a little cabin in a field near the top of a mountain in Chelsea play such a significant part in their lives and beyond? This is a story about love and about the struggles of two people to make a life for themselves in the face of much adversity. While you will be certain that they both gain strength from the love of each other and the love of their friends and family, you may begin to wonder if they are also watched over by those who have died, and perhaps by the very mountain that their cabin was built on. In the end, you may even wonder if triumph can be achieved, with an act that you might always have thought was anything but triumphant.
