About the Book

The world is restless with change during the summer of 1915. As modern technologies kindle optimistic dreams and a women’s movement develops, three sisters and their mother vacation in the now popular summer destination of Cape Cod where the seeds of possibility begin to grow.

Emilie, Emma, and Helene Schumacher are in the middle of their lives and restless to develop something of value that will last and also pass on their strong moral values to generations of young women to come. As they set out to create a girls’ camp on Cape Cod that they hope will advance women’s athletics, the sisters must garner support from the local community to achieve their goal. But that task may be easier said than done as one obstacle after the other rises up to meet them.

Schumacher Way shares the charming historical tale of three sisters who must rely on their work ethics, determination, a loving family, and the local community while attempting to establish a camp for girls on Cape Cod in 1915.
