About For the Love of Rose: A Journey in Three Worlds:
FOR THE LOVE OF ROSE is the haunting love stories of two Northern New York dairy farm brothers in the mid-1930s. Frank Barbury loves trains and wants to be an engineer. But then he meets and literally falls head-over-heels in love with Rose, a Long Island artist who is five years his senior. Frank and his younger brother Jake have been raised in a strict “no guns, no anger, no killing” atmosphere, so when Rose and her doctor-father become lost in Spain, Frank innocently volunteers to search for them. The country is embroiled in a bloody Civil War where people are being executed for belonging to the opposition party. In his hunt for Rose he volunteers for one of the most dangerous wartime jobs there is – ambulance driver rescuing the wounded from battle zones.
Jake Barbury misses his big brother and attempts to trace him by turning to the study of Spain and International News. He starts writing regular thought provoking columns on war which are picked up by American newspapers. It is through Jake that the story fits into historical events between 1936 and 1940. Frank finds Rose but the cost is far beyond what a teenager should endure in achieving adulthood. Does he ever return to Barbury Farm in Three Mile Bay? And what is the legendary and mystical Sunset Train connection with the old stone bridge?
The author studied the 1930s lifestyles of Northern New Yorkers, the Civil War in Northern Spain and visited various Basque Country battle zones including Urkiola and Elgeta along with Durango, the innocent city terror bombed on March 31st 1937 by the Luftwaffe staffed Condor Legion.
