Description
The Bonus: a novel of the Great Depression by Georgia Lowe ,is the culmination of 10 years research. It also comes from a desire to tell the story of the 20,000+Bonus marchers-including Georgia's parents and their cross-country trek to DC to make their voices heard.

These WWI veterans & hardy souls,in the midst of the Depression and fueled largely by their frustrations & determination- stood up to a non-responsive government & President Hoover. The Bonus tells an enriching story of a little known yet pivotal event in US 20th century history. A strong read for veterans, their families, those interested in social movements and general fiction readers. Journalist Will & actress Bonnie's engaging love story is masterfully woven around and through the historical events. Many will also get haunting echoes of Hoover/FDR and its relevance to today.
