Publisher's Summary

Mothers give birth in the borning room. The dying take their departure there. Outside the Lott family’s Ohio farmhouse, the Civil War rages, slavery falls, and the world marvels at the wonder of electricity. Inside, within the walls of the borning room, Georgina Lott will experience her life’s greatest turnings. Across the years, she discovers womanhood and first love, experiences the mourning that comes with loss, and, as did her mother and grandmother, at last takes her place in the room as another precious life is about to begin.

A Favorite!!

This is one of my favorite short stories ever. I've read it 3(+) times, the narrator is wonderful and her voice is full of feeling. The story it's self is a great piece of work and worth listening/reading.
