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.
KENTUCKY IS HEAVEN ON EARTH. DISTILLERY IS FLOURISHING. CAN MAKE A NEW LIFE HERE. COME TO ME, MY LOVE. WE’RE GOING TO BE WHISKEY MAKERS.
