This book is about a loving and warm family who made their home in the area of Tumbling Creek, Virginia in the early 1900s. It brings to life an era long ago, when there was time for porch sitting and visiting with neighbors.  When molasses making and taffy pulling parties were the social functions.

Ben Jensen was very strict in his ways.  He was compassionate toward his family, especially his lovely daughters, Katie and Dolly.  Mammy Belle and Daddy Jensen raised their children in the ways of the Lord, with church attendance a priority in their lives.

One spring day while picking strawberries in the meadow below their home, Katie and Dolly Jensen had their first glimpse of the two brothers, Seth and Tom Hankins, who were fishing in the creek nearby. They didn't know that this day they had come face to face with their destiny.  Three years passed, with only vague memories of the two brothers. 

 Life continued on Tumbling Creek, and Katie and Dolly grew into beautiful young ladies.  They often wondered what became of the two brothers they had seen fishing  on that long ago spring day.  

Mammy Belle was shopping at the local general store, and she heard the news that the two brothers had returned from their three year journey across Clinch mountain where they had been employed on a cattle farm. Katie and Dolly could hardly contain their excitement.   Soon romance blossomed, and life was never the same again.

Follow Katie and Dolly as they face great challenges while maturing iinto womanhood.  Rejoice with them when they find true love, and cry with them when tragedy strikes in the lives of each.     

This is a work of fiction with historical facts added in certain circumstances.
