My Darling Anna is the true story of Dr. Will Gray, his fiancée Anna and their struggles to begin a life together in the booming Pacific Northwest. It is also the story of how they left a legacy of culture and education to their new community through their activities and those of their daughter, Margaret Gray. The story is largely told through the letters of Dr. Gray, sent back home to Anna in Iowa, during his early years in Fairhaven 1890 and 1891.
Over 200 illustrations help the book describe that era of the great migration to the West, which occurred as the 19th century roared to a close. The special edition contains a section honoring Margaret Gray, and each book comes with an hour long CD containing interviews with the late Miss Gray and duets from the operettas that she produced in the 1940’s.
