In the Shadow of the Rainbow is a story which covers three generations of women and their stories... all who experienced broken hearts and the joys of the rainbows that will follow the raindrops in their lives. It covers the years from the mid 1800's into the 2000's. It is a story of eight women and how their lives become entwined into a family story. Every family has stories to tell...stories that are exciting or tragic or humorous or just entertaining. This story will consist of all of these states. This has become an autobiography/ historical fiction/novel...one that I hope you will enjoy.
