Eleanor and Valentine – Chapter 8
Half the men of Franklin county died in the war, and the local economy fell apart. Times were tough and the Weiss hardware store couldn’t support both Napoleon and Valentine. A war buddy offered Valentine a position in his family distillery in Kentucky. If the job worked out, he would send for Eleanor.
His telegram arrived six months later.
