The year is 1872. The Civil War has ended, leaving behind a shattered nation. Etched in Granite is a harrowing account of life and death on a rural New England Poor Farm-a tragic, yet triumphant story of courage, survival, and secrets surrounding lost love. Unwed, with child, and nowhere else to turn, Abigail Hogdgon becomes an inmate at the Poor Farm. There is no way to escape Silas, an overseer, and the one who betrayed her.
Native elder, healer, and midwife-Nellie-provides grandmother wisdom, teaching Abigail the secrets of Our Mother, resilience, and how to face overwhelming loss. Their unforgettable stories are carefully woven together to reveal a hidden part of America's somber past.
