One of America’s most acclaimed writers journeys to the land on which he has staked a literary claim to paint an indelible portrait of a family in a time of unprecedented change. When Robert Morgan began the saga of the Richards family in his novel Gap Creek, the book became an Oprah Book Club Selection, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers to its beguiling story of a marriage begun with love and hope but beset by chaos at the turn of the twentieth century. Now, in a masterful work of historical fiction, he introduces a new generation of this close-knit family in a captivating story that looks ahead to the uncertainties of the future, the struggle to define oneself, and the discovery of enduring love.

An ok read

Was hoping for a similar story to the first book. This one tended to jump around in time and the thought process wasn't very clear. Nice to see the change in the characters as they age, but in some ways they seemed like totally different people from the first book.

A great story. This book is the sequel to Gap Creek and both are excellent reads. I wish there was a book about the middle of this families tale.

This book transported me back to my early years living on a small farm. A superbly written story filled with special insight into a woman's innermost thoughts and feelings.
