By M.L. Gardner / Genre: Sagas / Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (386 reviews)

1929 Jonathan's Cross - Book One (The 1929 Series)

What would you do if you lost everything?

That’s exactly what I asked myself the day I watched the stock market plunge 777 points on September 29th 2008. On that same day I began a manual on how to survive the coming Depression.
Much to my surprise, it wanted to be a fiction novel. 1929 Jonathan’s Cross and a large cast of characters were born.
Jonathan Garrett, Aryl Sullivan, Caleb Jenkins and their wives were faced with that very question.
The answers and the resulting storyline surprised and intrigued me.

They lose their business and homes, automobiles and possessions. They find themselves suddenly in need of a home and rent rundown tenements from Jonathan’s business rival, who delights in tormenting them.

Lucky to find work at all, they accept low paying manual labor positions. Their wives are forced to learn domestic skills and rely heavily on each other for support.

The glue that holds the group together is Maura, Jonathan’s former house maid. Full of hard love and sound advice, she does her best to see them through a journey full of twists and turns, disappointments and delights.
