Grace was raised in a quiet town near Boston. Her parents ran a popular tearoom, often a hub for anti-saloon league meetings. As a child, Grace was generally left to entertain herself, which resulted in her reading all of her older brother’s adventure books. This early taste of adventure would set the course of her life. As she got older, she discovered her parents’ plan to betroth her to a prominent local leader in the temperance movement. To avoid this fate, Grace decided to leave home and find excitement on her own terms. She left her old life behind to discover the joys of dance, whiskey, and the Wild West!
