    First, their daughter Lillian arrives, with her two children in tow, to escape her crumbling marriage. Next, their son Stephen and his pregnant wife Jane show up for a weekend visit, which extends indefinitely when Jane ends up on bed rest. When their youngest daughter Rachel appears, fleeing her difficult life in New York, Ginny and William find themselves consumed again by the chaos of parenthood - only this time around, their children are facing adult problems.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The mom who kept her silence when needed and said the right thing at the right time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The arrival of the estranged husband.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I wanted it to last - listened while walking and while sewing.


    Any additional comments?

    The connection from one story part to another seemed to be missing at times. There was no good transition between the brother's living away and suddenly being home.

    Story

    It is 1904. When Frederick and Jette must flee her disapproving mother, where better to go than America, the land of the new? Originally set to board a boat to New York, at the last minute, they take one destined for New Orleans instead ("What's the difference? They're both new."), and later find themselves, more by chance than by design, in the small town of Beatrice, Missouri. Not speaking a word of English, they embark on their new life together.
