Gran also had opinions as to the right choice of a mate, and Johnny, from across the hollow, would like to be the one chosen.  He would love to help Amy Catherine if he could just figure out how she wanted to be helped.  Johnny, however, came into his own when something that belonged to Amy Catherine was threatened by the rushing Tuscalara River.  He bravely took it upon himself to save it for her even if it took a battle against the Mississippi Central Railway as well as the water.

Being the thirteenth kid has its plusses and minuses, and one of the plusses was the freedom available for a child of that era.  It was also a time movement within the American Red Cross, because of the restlessness in Europe, but no one wanted to think about was... being so soon over the war between the states. It was incredible to think how this concerned a teenage girl in Arkansas, but Rewenna knew of God's assignment to His angels (Psalms 91:11) otherwise how could have been brave enough to follow the path assigned to her?
