The Girl On The Tombstone: Will's Search to Belong by Betty Ruth Weatherby

Wilhelmina Sukovich is curious and determined to have her own By Line in the Sacramento Bee. Aged out at the Children’s Home Society orphanage, she attends night school and works herself up in the newspaper hierarchy. Her first big break comes as an assignment takes her to the small mountain town of San Andreas in the Gold Country of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

She searches out her father’s gravesite only to mysteriously be drawn to
the artistry of an ancient tombstone nearby, Eliza Osbourne, 1868. Formidable ranchers and a widow befriend her in her quest to fulfill her assignment for school children and search for Eliza’s roots.

World War II veteran, Charles, rescues Will from her misadventures. Who is he and why is he such a recluse? Why has he taken it upon himself to see she is safe?

My Review

There were times while reading this story that my heart ached for the little girl brought up in an orphanage, we see parts of her life as she reflects on what the matron said.
We follow this young woman now a want to be reporter, as she stumbles on her roots, and accidents, and mystery abounds here, good thing we can’t see around a corner.
We are in San Andreas California area and a different time, 1953 to be exact, and in an old mine town, but for me I wanted her to find a place to belong, and will this be the place?
You will be page-turning for answers, and I fell in love with the pup
I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review.
