In the 1930s, between the time when the depression caused everyone to panic and the war caused everyone to worry, Virginia Schatz rode around the bustling city of Johnstown in her father's new Chrysler Airflow. Life and time would take her places she never expected to see, doing things she never expected to do. She didn't know that the man who developed the trigger mechanism for the atomic bomb would sweep her off her feet in just a few years, or that in less than a decade she would be on a remote island making donuts for lonely soldiers in the navy. At the time, Johnstown was a wonderful place to be.
