In Dorothy Dierks Hourihan's 1919--A Kansas Tale, the reader is presented with a convincing picture of life in a small town in Kansas in the years following World War I.  The main character, Nan Heath, starts the story by watching the bodies of her parents and sister being removed from their burnt-out home.  Nan's progress from these bitter depths is the main current of the book.  Her relationship with Ned and their eventual marriage is a classic love story full of awakening and triumphs.

I'm impressed by the opening paragraphs! Such descriptive imagery! 
                              This must be a 'sleeper' here on Wattpad. I'm afraid the best writers don't always become the most popular here. I will come back to read this when time allows.
