Publisher's Summary

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.

Most Helpful

Mediocre story, irritating narrator.

While the story was at times interesting, the narrator really put me off. I struggled to finish the entire book, and only did so as I was determined not to waste the money I paid for it.

Good but a little slow

It was a good book, but I found it difficult to finish. Hopefully I'll come back to it at some point.
