Farrell Family Saga – Volume 7
by Sharon Poppen
Over a hundred years have passed since the Farrell family in After the War, Before The Peace – Book 1 struggled to overcome the devastating aftermath of the U.S. Civil war. The family drew on its sense of right and wrong, along with the love and trust that each family member would rise to any and all challenges placed in their path. As the series of books moved through the generations, the Farrell’s handled the creative era of new inventions brought on at the beginning of the twentieth century. They served and suffered during, and after, World War II. While remaining cowboys first, they flourished as entertainers during the sex, drugs and rock roll era of the mid-century. Now, Peace by Pieces, brings on the greatest challenge yet to the Farrell family as they attempt to extend their adventures out into the unknown and uncharted wilderness of the stars. While still a child, Lita Farrell’s fascination with classis cars escalated to a curiosity and drive to rocket off solid ground to soar among the stars. This focus led her into the U.S. Air Force where she rose to the rank of Captain. Every office she held, was a step guiding her to the space program. Once she was accepted, she planned on clearing her slate of personal involvements, leaving her with total commitment to becoming an astronaut. But, nothing comes easy to a Farrell and her arrival in Houston was the beginning of a wild ride that included more than just achieving her goal. Men, one in Hawaii and one in Houston, presented Lita with challenges that threatened her life long dream of space travel. As usual with the Farrell family, what happens to one Farrell affects every Farrell, from parent to grandchild, from generation to generation. I hope this family continues to touch your heart and that you’ll want to experience Lita’s road to peace of mind as she is assisted in her quest by surprising visits from the past.
