~ a book by Carla Haslam Herkner
Monitor Road is an American story about a young family nestled into their quiet Sunday routine in the coalfields of West Virginia. It is a story about immigration, the blending of nationalities and gun violence that tears apart the Salino family. It is also a story about perseverance, courage and love of family. On June 16, 1918, violence on Monitor Hill dissolves a family as gunshots echo throughout the valley…or does it?
