Wonderful, tear jerker, sensitive and full of God's love and compassion.
Can't go wrong with Lynn Austin!

MAYBE THE BEST EVER!
I am refusing to read the last four pages because I cannot believe the book is ending. This one grabs you from the beginning, is not at all predictable, and does not let you go! Few books have held me like this one - it surely is one that I will re-read very soon just to find the "clues" I may have missed the first time through!

This was a great book, featuring four generations of women and showing how the choices of one affected the others. It examined the differences between German Protestant and Irish Catholic immigrant lifestyles, pacifist and patriotic views of WW1, WW2, and Vietnam, wife abuse, single motherhood and prohibition. They gave enough clues so I could figure out the secret, and all the loose ends were tied up. Mrs. Austin writes with humour and sensitivity. The four love stories were sweet and the characters likeable, even the bootleggers.
