- A timeless American classic rediscovered—an unforgettable saga of a heartland family.
- On a farm in western Missouri during the first half of the twentieth century, Matthew and Callie Soames create a life for themselves and raise four headstrong daughters. Jessica will break their hearts. Leonie will fall in love with the wrong man. Mary Jo will escape to New York. And wild child Mathy’s fate will be the family’s greatest tragedy. Over the decades they will love, deceive, comfort, forgive—and, ultimately, they will come to cherish all the more fiercely the bonds of love that hold the family together.

“How well do we know our fathers and mothers? Or our sisters for that matter? All of us have many secrets that are part of our life. This book is full of real life secrets. It certainly gives us the human side, the failing side of a “country” family in the early 20th century. I read this book as if it were an assignment. I underlined many sentences and folded many page corners. I wanted to re-read those I favored. This is a beautifully written book with lots of insight. It will leave you with memories.” By Beverly Black
“I first read this 3 years ago and loved it. Recently wanted to read it again to see how it was put together. Liked it even better and bought copies for 2 of my friends I thought would appreciate it. Had recommended it to 2 others, no feedback yet. It is old-fashioned in every way, certainly NOT cutting edge, but then, that’s me as well..” By Judy K.
