Between Grass and Hay

Amy Scanes-Wolfe

Between Grass and Hay is a historical fiction novel based on the founding of Longmont, Colorado.

The Chicago-Colorado Colony is an experiment in industry, temperance, and morality. Burlington is still reeling from the bloody murder that put its town on the map. One winter day in 1871, their fates collide. Burlingtons residents will have to decide if they can put the past behind them and tackle the improbable task of supporting an agricultural colony on the periphery of the Great American Desert. The personal dramas entangled in this venture will both make and break the budding colony. Will Terrasina Merrill, dedicated schoolteacher, sacrifice her independence to marry a persistent former student? Will Alonzo Allen, on the verge of adolescence, step out from under the shadow of his formidable mother? Caught in a tug of war between domestic duty and ambition, which will Fred Beckwith choose? In this tapestry of lives woven over the arid Colorado prairie, we get a glimpse into the complicated stories of ordinary people and how they coalesce into something that is still here today Longmont.
