Time in Its Flight by Susan Fromberg Schaeffer
Time in its Flight is a stirring story of epic proportions about passion, love, and a family's will to survive. When Edna Dickinson and Dr. John Steele marry they embark on a perilous journey. Time, in its endless flight, takes many things from the Steeles. They and the children they raise battle against the ravages of nature and disease and the anguish of seemingly unbearable loss. But through the silent touches of time, their courage and love for each other are resources that allow them not only to endure the burdens of life, but to find their way to contentment in what seems and antagonistic world. -- Inside book jacket.
