Drama Between the World Wars:

by jjares on Aug 27, 2013

Most of this powerful story takes place after World War I on the Plains of Nebraska. It?s a story about families and family relationships. Letty Pringle comes from a family of evangelical zealots who preach forgiveness but don?t use it themselves. Letty is 15 and Mike is 17; they promise their wedding vows and swear they will always love each other. Because times are hard and money is scarce, Mike leaves Letty to earn money so they can marry. Unfortunately, Letty finds she is pregnant soon after Mike leaves. Cora, her sister, seems to hate Letty and tells their parents about Letty?s condition. The family immediately rants that she has ruined them and her father tells her to leave ? she is dead to them. Because Preacher Pringle is so vindictive (he would discourage people from doing business with Mike?s family, who have many mouths to feed), Letty cannot go to Mike?s family for help. With few options, she decides to go to her maternal grandparents? home and beg them to accept her. Letty learns about love within the family from her grandparents. Although their lives are simple and plain, Letty realizes this is the life she wants to lead. Mostly, the ?bad guys? have no redeeming values. However, we do see that one of the secondary villains experiences a change of heart. There is a murder and plenty of sadness in this tale; 4 stars. Dolan Brothers 1. Ribbon in the Sky (1991) 2.
