The Depression held an icy grip on New Bedford through the winter of 1933. Grace tries to find love with Del, but that proves to be difficult. Hub gets his first dose of “The Fever” and Fat finds out about the “birds and the bees”. Honey and Max build their new life together, while Bob and Toppy’s marriage is crumbling. Many other townsfolk have fallen on “Hard Times” in the wake of the Silver Dome Mine closure, but matriarch May Bailey refuses to go down without a fight.
In spite of much resentment and blame directed at the Baileys, May manages to restructure her finances and re-open her beloved mine. Now that the citizens of New Bedford are back to work, spirits are lifted and although times are difficult, life carries on. The Baileys face these situations, and many more, with love, laughter and perseverance, making Wind at my Back: Volume Three an emotional roller coaster that simply can’t be missed.
