Grand Central

"The Reunion" - a novella by Kristina McMorris

Virginia Collier discovered her calling at the height of WWII as a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), an adventurous job that led to close friendships and even a whirlwind romance. But then a devastating tragedy changed everything. A year later, in the fresh wake of the Allies' victory, she at last musters the courage to board a train bound for a confrontation with her past. Yet with every passing mile, the temptation grows to forgo her destination and keep harbored a haunting secret.

"Emotionally moving, evocative in their descriptions, each piece sticks with the reader, giving a pulse on the postwar world. This anthology will be gobbled up by armchair historians, women’s fiction fans, and those who enjoy a moving love story."

About the Anthology

Grand Central trioOn any particular day, thousands upon thousands of people pass through New York City's Grand Central Terminal, through the whispering gallery, beneath the ceiling of stars, and past the information booth and its beckoning four-faced clock, to whatever destination is calling them. It is a place where people come to say hello and good-bye. And each person has a story to tell.
