Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Cassandra Campbell provides a gripping performance of a family of women who are separated by misadventure and misunderstanding. After her mother dies, Mabel Fischer flees the cruel abuse of her stepfather, running away with the help of her younger sister Bertie’s beau. Never receiving the explaining letters sent by Mabel, Bertie feels betrayed. Campbell narrates this epic story with grace and understanding. As Mabel’s and Bertie’s lives move in widely disparate directions, each woman beginning her own dynasty of women, Campbell’s characters alternate between warmth and bitterness, awareness and self-delusion. From the Depression era to the current century, Nancy Jensen’s compelling novel unfolds a tapestry woven across generations, intricate in its detail, illustrating the events that tear families apart yet bind them, inextricably, together.
