Sophie asked:

Could you tell me how many periods of time are in the book?

Jayna The book jumps chronologically, but it stretches from the 1910s to the 1980s. Every decade is visited, even if briefly. The majority of the book is 'present day' (1980s- when it was written) and 1929-1945 (from the Depression through the end of WWII).
