Yours In A Hurry -- A Historical Novel Set in the Early 20th Century

Yours in a Hurry, Ann Kathleen Otto, historical fiction

Life changes for the Hartle siblings  when their prosperous parents die suddenly in 1901. Now it's 1908 and the three oldest—Anna, Addison and Purl—have come of age and use their generous inheritance to leave their small Ohio village. 

Experience historical events and with characters from Hollywood to Europe and the Pacific Rim, including famous film stars, aviators, and American heroes. The siblings sometimes visit Ohio, but not for long. As Addison often expresses at the end of his letters, they are "Yours in a hurry."
