This is a good book set during the Depression and the beginning of World War II. When Alona loses her first husband in an accident she struggles to support herself and her three sons during the Depression. When local wealthy business owner, Oscar Moran takes a liking to her and her boys she marries him in haste. When she meets Oscar's half brother Jason she becomes attracted to him but she she wishes to remain loyal to her marriage vows. The ending of the book is predictable.
