In the spring of 1865, a letter arrives in Whitcomb Springs for Evelyn Whitcomb. The Civil War has ended and the whereabouts of her husband is unknown, but she doesn’t give up hope. With courage, the help of a friend, and the love of a people, Evelyn finds a way to face—and endure—the unexpected.
“Whitcomb Springs” is the introductory, stand-alone short story of the Whitcomb Springs series set in post-Civil War Montana.
What Happy Bookworms are Saying
"What a wonderful story of courage and hope. I loved Evelyn Whitcomb’s story and her love for her town and the families in it. How courageous she was. I hope we hear more about Evelyn and Daniel in future stories. I look forward to more short stories from this post-Civil War town."
"A western story of hope and dreams! MK McClintock's western adventure, "Whitcomb Springs," is set at the end of the Civil War in Montana Territory. It's the introduction to a series of short stories set between 1865-1885. The female characters are sweet and endearing! This short novella is well written and filled with emotions. I cannot wait to read the next story in this series."
"One couldn't hope to find a more idyllic town as Whitcomb Springs today. Remote in the mountains of Montana, it becomes a safe haven for those wounded emotionally and physically by the horrors of the War Between the States. Founded by a couple that has taken responsibility for its residents, the Whitcombs become the patriarch and matriarch of the community. The story makes me wish to travel back in time and know them as friends."
"Whitcomb Springs is a fabulous short story by MK McClintock. I love this time period and she captured it perfectly with details. I enjoyed Evelyn Whitcomb and her courage, determination and not give up hope.
I give this book five plus stars. I cannot wait to continue the series."
A Note from MK
The Whitcomb Springs series came about from an idea I had to write a series with other authors. I knew the stories needed to be short so we could fit them in between other projects, and what a delightful surprise to see how much both authors and readers connected with the characters in this small, mountain town. This is a series of hope, love, promises, and overcoming odds. How many stories will there be? None of us know. Join us as we enjoy the journeys, adventures, and sweet romances of Whitcomb Springs.
Be well, be kind, and enjoy!
