Meanwhile, Abigail Massey at McAdam Station, Volume 5, has been delayed.
Authors Mark Walma and Mary E. O’Keefe are hard at work, dreaming up and chronicling new adventures (and new characters) for Abigail, Martha and all of their friends. The fifth collection includes new stories with fun, adventure and even a few surprises, and is now scheduled for publication some time in 2017.
As our stories begin (in Volume 1), Abigail Massey is 16 years old, living with her mom and dad in the town of McAdam Junction, a tiny community in the south west corner of New Brunswick. The year is 1941 and Canada is embroiled in the Allied war effort as World War 2 enters its third year of fighting.
With her country at war, Abigail wants to find a way to serve her country and support the Canadian soldiers risking their lives in far away lands. Fortunately for her, and her cousin Martha Casey from Fredericton, McAdam Junction just happens to be the home of the McAdam Railway Station and Hotel, the beautiful gateway to Eastern Canada for trains coming from all across the country and one of the finest hotels in the Atlantic Provinces.
Join Abigail, Martha and their new friends Jenny and Alice as they live and work at this fabulous Station, trying to keep out of trouble as much as possible while experiencing the thrills and excitement of working in a place through which the world passes on a daily basis.
