Let’s step out of the fantasy world and enter the historical fiction world of Georgia May Maxwell a nine-year-old girl in 1918. She would one day grow up to be my grandma, but the road to that destiny tested her to the very core.

What do you do when a tornado destroys the life you’ve always known and a deadly virus threatens to destroy what’s left? 

The 1918 pandemic of Spanish Influenza looms over Georgia, her parents and siblings as they leave Kansas bound for Colorado in a Studebaker Touring Car.
