Etched in Granite is a harrowing account of life and death on a rural New England Poor Farm a tragic, yet triumphant novel that tells a story of courage, survival, and secrets surrounding lost love. Author Mj Pettengill was inspired to write this novel by the her discovery of a pauper cemetery on the Carrol County Farm in Ossipee, New Hampshire, where there are 298 numbered graves. This program is part of her mission to give voices to those silenced, to evoke images where they have been erased, and to replace the numbers with names.
