They lived the kind of lives that most young ladies did in their time. They went to school, played sports, made lasting friendships and married relatively early. As unremarkable as that may seem, it was just the tip of the iceberg for what was coming. They took on and accepted the most thankless job at times they could possibly do, they became Mothers. As most Mothers know, this is not an undertaking that is taken lightly.

Plot War of the

This is, similar to issue #1, a stand-alone story with only a few hints at a larger plot scattered throughout but it is a heartfelt issue which favors a little more emotion rather
