The Reberts Of Littlestown

The Reberts of LittlestownDody Myers

A book about historical romantic fiction set in the south.

Lillie Schwartz - Determined to win Alex's love Lillie knows from the start that she has a serious rival in the flamboyant Belle McPherson.

Alex Rebert - Alex also knows that Belle's heart belongs to his adopted brother, Jamie McPherson. Alex's is a secret passion that will haunt him for many years.

Effie Riffle - Materialistic and beautiful, Effie feels that love can tame the drinking habits of the fashionable, wealthy Harry Rebert.

Harry Rebert - The story of the Rebert family concludes with Harry, the product of obsessive maternal love, lured by the excitement of the Roaring Twenties, a victim of progress and his own personal demons.

The continuing saga of the Rebert family, which began with THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE and the Civil War, follow these love stories, while they are constantly clouded by a changing American culture - Women's Rights and Suffrage, the birth of the modern cities, World War 1, and Prohibition.

This book was written as a portrait of a family - but a portrait pieced together of facts and conjecture, against a background of America's emerging growth, of powerful men, of great events and decisions. I have traced the stories of places and people: of Christ Church, Littlestown, and Hanover, of the aftermath of Civil War, the Women Suffrage movement, and of my German ancestors.

The facts call for a certain explanation. Many times I have had to rely on the authority of oral history. I have taken the author's liberty of adjusting some dates to make the story flow more naturally. And finally I have changed some names and created a few fictional characters.

Let me say, then, that I have selected facts and arranged them, to make a portrait of a family. The family is mine; for the most part these people lived, loved, and fought their own personal demons.

The portrait on the cover is that of my great-grandfather and great-grandmother - Alex and Lillie Rebert.
