A depressing but interesting saga

This was my first Kristin Hannah book and I was not bored. I'm usually not a fan of sagas: lots of things happening over a long period if time but it was a book club choice. (If I read saga in the review I usually go no further!) The poor main character was continually criticized by her parents because she wasn't pretty enough to attract a husband. The man she married, because he paid her some attention and provided her an escape from her parents, left her and their 2 children when the physical and emotional toll of the dust bowl was just too much for him. While he was losing strength to deal with their problems, our main character grew stronger and more determined to take care of her family. Her efforts take them to California, work camps, being kept in debt by the company store and witnessing/being involved in the emerging unions (and their connection with communism). Whew! But on the positive side, it has what I always like to see in a female character: someone who gains strength through perseverance and gets the job done. Also, historical fiction, where the reader learns about different time periods is always a plus. I do have one burning question: would it have changed the trajectory of the story that much, for it to have had a happier ending?!?! (Hopefully that's not too much of a spoiler!)

Incredible story that you won't be able to put it down . The story grabs you in the beginning and

I watched the Waltons growing up . This is another side to parts of the depression. You will feel lucky after this read.

Amazing book

This story draws you in immediately. You feel such compassion for this young girl right away. All the characters are believable and have great depth. And the struggle during the depression was very real. I found this to be an excellent read. It’s one of my favorite books.
