Read from September 18 to 19, 2012

I found this read to be a story that covers the trial and tribulations of a few characters, families, you are taken through their life of loss and love successfully by this author.
One female protagonist whom breaks free from one life and sets up across the country to a new dwelling an island with hopes of a long lasting happiness with a family finds that she’s no more at home in her finally days there as when she first set foot in the new environment. Hard times are come to fruition, the depression era and the emergence of a war with Japan. A beacon of light in the dark days arrived in the form of a new delivery of offspring holding a possible chance of a happier and more solid future for the family but this is watered down by the tide of problems and bad luck one woman has set before her.
The vast landscape and life of these women contained mothers and daughters makes great reading through the eyes of memorable characters.
