Darlene Franklin leads the pack with The Drummer's Angel in the newly compiled period anthology, Romancing the Swinging Sixties.
Darlene Franklin's installment takes place in December, 1963. America is reeling from the assassination of President Kennedy. Our protagonist, Jack is reeling, too, when he meets God.

But where she finds comfort in tradition, the town council insists on trying new ways of handling the homefront challenges. Now, she's taking on a most untraditional opponent.
With hometown champion Frank Sawtelle as her coach, Winnie Tuttle has a real chance to compete in the world's foremost skating competition.
