PETOSKEY, Mich., Feb. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Penny finds adventure with her Air Force pilot husband, Frank, and with the help of other servicemen’s brides, overcomes her fear of losing him. But it’s her death that sets a fated conclusion in motion in Stewert James’ new novel “The Penny” (published by Archway Publishing).


Beginning at Fort Sumter and Andersonville Prison during the Civil War, the book shares a family saga of connected lineages surviving over two centuries and through major conflicts up to the Vietnam War. Along the way the story follows the aging veterans and their wives as they prosper and persevere through the most difficult of times before handing the world off to the next generation.


“Baby Boomers are aging and reflecting back on The Greatest Generation. This book fosters that review,” James says. “But at the same time reminds us how very connected we all are. Don’t forget, soon, us older folks will outnumber the young!”


“The Penny” is available for purchase online form Archway Publishing, at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon at:
