Willow Vale Launched January 3

AUTHOR ALETHEA WILLIAMS EXPLORES LOVE, LOSS IN POST-WWI WYOMING
WILLOW VALE
OUT JANUARY 3

Former Wyoming resident and author Alethea Williams paints a vivid picture of living life and finding love in the turbulent West after the Great War. Readers will connect with the stubborn, hard-working protagonist, Francesca Sittoni, who is brought to America against her will by a husband she never loved. She soon finds herself alone—widowed, pregnant, and with a small daughter to support.
Terrified of being deported back to the impoverished country of her birth, Francesca answers an ad placed by Wyoming rancher and former doughboy Kent Reed. As their contracted year together passes, Francesca begins to ask if she is cook and housekeeper to Kent...or a secretly sought mail-order bride as the meddling neighbors insist?
Williams explores the powerful pull of love and endurance through an intriguing page-turner full of heartache, romance, and overcoming hardship. Set against the captivating frontier of Wyoming, Willow Vale is the saga of two strangers struggling with their own demons who ultimately manage to create a life together.
Readers will feel the passion and experience the resolve to succeed exhibited by Francesca, who finds her match in Kent Reed. Willow Vale is an excellent choice for anyone interested in historical fiction, romance, and the lure of the Wyoming frontier.
