Marching Orders

Dear Readers,
I write to beg your pardon for a brief hiatus here at "Ghosts of 1914." An unexpectedly sudden--but positive and exciting!--need to move has come to my husband and myself. Right now, we are packing and packing, ready to mobilize our little household and head to Western shores. I'll soon be writing from California, my native state. Though the times they are a changin' in some regards, I'll still be working on my dissertation and will still be energetically traveling the highways and byways of  the global-British experience of WWI. I hope you'll continue to join me for our journeys into this compelling  and persistently resonant area of modern history.

Please be patient and do stay tuned for my next post, which should pop up in about a week, once our feet are on Californian ground.

The stories will continue to be told and the ghosts will continue to be summoned...

With warm thanks for reading,
