The story of four generations of women, starting with a the first daughter's emigration from a tiny eastern European village to America and ending with her great grand daughter's first attempts to do the very same thing that started the story - break away from her mother. The historical part has a great sense of time and place, while the contemporary part relies on characterization to draw the reader in. This makes for an uneven, but still quite readable story.
