About this ebook

It's 1944, and high school senior Meg Michaels has always obeyed her grandparents' wishes, till now. They're urging her to give up her dream of Cornell University and accept a ring from wealthy Hank Wickham before he deploys overseas.

But Meg has studied hard and yearns for something better than life in the rural Finger Lakes. Plus Meg's suddenly fascinated with her childhood friend, Arthur Young, a handsome Seneca Indian farm worker. When Meg and Arthur nurse a sick puppy to health, their friendship transforms into love.

But locals look down on "injuns" and resent the fact that Arthur's farm job exempts him from military duty. While the war rages in Europe, Meg and Arthur must fight their own battles at home…

Author

Emily Heebner

Raised in Buffalo, NY, summering on Seneca Lake among her parents' extended families, Emily followed her mother's path to Cornell University. She was inspired by the Finger Lakes' fertile history as birthplace of the women's movement, of Twain's writing Huckleberry Finn, as a stopping point along the Underground Railroad. At Cornell she majored in English. A life-long diarist and avid reader, with a mother who provided summer reading lists to her and her two sisters, Emily dreamed of writing professionally. But an acting class at Cornell taught by a future Pulitzer Prize winner bit her with the acting bug. She went on to stand-by on Broadway, appear in television commercials and act with major regional companies including Berkeley Repertory, Actors Theatre of Louisville and A Noise Within. What a joy to speak the words of great playwrights, from Shakespeare to Shaw, from Larry Shue to Sarah Ruhl. Then, as a mom and Theatre Arts professor, she rediscovered her first love, writing. She published with The Christian Science Monitor and wrote documentary scripts for special features on such dvds as The Hours, Tuck Everlasting and The Passion. Currently she and her film professor husband teach at Chapman University, spending summers at their mountain home with their adopted dog and two cats. Seneca Lake is her first novel.
