The Munson Family Journey: A Remarkable True Story!

Katie Munson was a struggling, poor young mother with four small children. At just 22 years of age, and freshly divorced, Katie had relocated her young family to their new home in a small rural town in southeastern Minnesota. In the comfort of her new surroundings, Katie presumed that she, along with her son and three baby girls, were safe from harm’s way. She believed they had escaped the iniquity from her past and were free to begin a renewed and happy life together. December 2, 1967, was a very special day for Katie Munson. Keith, her oldest, was turning four today, but while Katie prepared for the toddler’s birthday party, nothing could have prepared her for the unforeseeable winter storm that was blowing in her direction, or the unspeakable terror that accompanied it! This particular day would prove to be just the beginning of a perpetual, formidable journey for Katie and her young family in their pursuit of peace and happiness. The road ahead was littered with obstacles that oftentimes appeared impossible to avert. Despite the many unavoidable detours that changed the course of their lives, Katie never lost sight of the potential rewards at the end of their relentless expedition. This is the first installment in the extraordinary Munson family saga—the epic and gripping true story of a young single mother and her four children as they navigate the river of life, in search of “the good stuff.”
