The Lookout Woman tells story of self-discovery
on a Montana mountain
In The Lookout Woman, Florence is a 40-something woman who has spent her adult years catering to a husband who turned out to be a disappointment while raising an honorable son.
To help make ends meet, Florence takes a job as a fire spotter on a mountaintop near Glacier National Park because the shortage of men who have gone off to the war leaves openings for women.
In 'The Lookout Woman,' Florence finds more than fires.
