Author Florence Osmundabout this boxed set: This two-book series begins when twenty-four-year-old Marie discovers the extent of her husband Richard's involvement in 1940s Chicago underground activities. She runs for her life, fate drawing her to Kansas where she rents a coach house apartment that she believes to be a safe refuge. But Richard isn't about to let her go easily, and his attempts at coercing her to believe that she is safer with him in his world than on her own are at times convincing, causing Marie to second-guess her own convictions.

At the brink of her crisis, Marie discovers the identity of her real father and his surprising heritage that changes Marie's life more than Richard ever could. About to meet him for the first time, Marie wonders how her newfound family will receive her and what she will learn about them…and their ethnicity.

Will Marie find the peace and truth in her life that she so desperately needs, or is it unrealistic for her to think that such disparate lives can freely converge in 1940s middle America? She quickly learns that the answer to that question will not come easily.

A lot happens as a result of Marie's visit, but ironically the most consequential outcome of it grows out of an encounter with a twelve-year-old neighbor girl named Rachael.
