The story of an American town and how every resident contributed and was influenced by the town. Very evocative of the time periods, both WW I and the depression years.
The main character, 12 year old Abilene. she's lived a pretty hard life, but is blissfully free of self pity and is very self reliant. However, she's looking for connection to a family and a place.
Would be a great back ground read to kids studying WW I and the Depression.
