The story of the dust bowl was what had me intrigued, but halfway through it turned political and did not end with any redeeming qualities IMO. Depressing from start to finish with nothing to gain but, Communism is the answer? 🤦🏼♀️
I have always been a warrior. Well, a survivor is the word that I used. I will change and use warrior now. This book is inspiring. The book also brings back memories of the times that I “fought” with my mother. I am so grateful for the time that I had with her to to talk, heal and love. She is with me everyday. Warrior.
The strength of a mother
Beautifully written. Elsa’s pain, loss, strength, and courage are palpable to the reader. She defines the very essence of motherhood. This is a page-turner, simply could not put this book down.
Tedious and slow.
This novel took forever to read. It could’ve been condensed by 2/3. Full of suffering and plight.
A Touching Tribute
For those of us who had parents and grandparents who lived through the depression, this book is a touching tribute to those warriors.
Unlike her other books
This was a disappointing read. Her other books are so good, this one drug on and on and never seems to get anywhere .
Couldn’t put it down
Had me from the start. The beginning was a bit slow but finally progressed. The obstacles of the time made me realize some perspectives I have not thought about. Historical portion was well done. So sad at the end.

Loved this book. Beautifully written.
So thoughtful and thought provoking.
By Awake Annie
Awful to think what we have been through at the hands of one another.
Very depressing and disappointing
It was not at all what I’m used to reading from her. The story dragged, very slow and depressing. There was nothing good or happy about this book.
