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.

Good but a little slow
Have loved this book since 1964
I have read this book many times over the years and was very happy to see it was finally on Audible. It is a lovely book about a family of 3 daughters starting in the early 1900's.
I like each family member having their own section of the book to tell their own story.
I didn't think she got Leonie's righteous character right and all the young men sounded like old men so perhaps not.
Leonie. She is so earnest, full of opinions and idealism and never getting loved enough for it.
