It was ok, a gentle story of the era & place. I don't doubt much of it is factual, for many women filled in jobs for the men that were gone to war. Women raised in isolated areas of western US were treated similar to their brothers - all hands were needed. EDITED: finishing this read I had a very different take on it. Poverty & daily struggle regardless of the time period is relevant in this story. This writer has insight into the aging, maturing process. The feelings & deep-seated thoughts are often never articulated between people & only age, with the backward view, may bring enlightenment. The relationship between parent/child, for example, is beyond my description & limited space or ability, to explain. Guilt, remorse for comments & actions in our youth or inexperience will bite all in the butt eventually.
