About this product
- DescriptionThe forward momentum of the twentieth century propels Mis(s)Fortune from a vaudeville dance hall to a Hollywood studio, from a London polio ward to a hogan in the high desert mountains, in this multi-generational saga of courage, determination, humor and hard-won wisdom. Genevieve DuMont, raising her child alone after her pilot husband is shot down over Germany in 1917, finds her predictable life upended on a train bound for New Orleans. Catherine Von Eller, a bride trapped in Europe by the second World War, bequeaths her strength and character to her only son. Dan Walker befriends a young Navajo boy and forges a lifelong bond. Martin Von Eller carries forward the aviation tradition of his father and grandfather as a decorated pilot in Vietnam. All meet their challenges with hor. But the ultimate test for the family comes when they commit a supreme act of kindness-sheltering a young woman fleeing from a Las Vegas mobster whose henchmen will stop at thing-harassment, arson, kidnapping, and murder-to get the girl, plus the money their boss insists she's stolen. With a heart-warming and memorable cast of characters, Mis(s)Fortune enlightens, entertains and inspires. And it doesn't stop here-there is a sequel in the works. After all, as one character says, that money has to be somewhere...
