Item description for The Invisible Country by H. E. Francis...
A master at weaving his stories around fully developed characters, H. E. Francis turns his talents to the intriguing drama of the Moorehead family as seen through the eyes of four principal characters. As the family metamorphoses through the Great Depression and the Great War, its story is played out in the landscapes of the university city of Madison, Wisconsin; Bristol and Providence, Rhode Island; Long Island and Plum Island, New York.
When the two Moorehead Brothers, Rod and Cory, fall in love with the same woman, Savannah Goshen becomes the unintentional, even accidental, cause of unfurling the history of the Moorehead family. One by one, veils that have protected the characters are peeled away. With each lifting of the veil, the reader is introduced to a variety of characters who are involved in the lives of the Mooreheads and who draw the reader into the pain of their tragedies and the joys of their meager but meaningful success.
You will become attached to the Mooreheads and their world, which carries somewhere in its legacy a piece of our own story. It is this literary achievement that makes "The Invisible Country" a compelling experience.
