Three equally engrossing, interwoven stories of 17-year-old women from different times and places: England in 1919, preparing to leave Kansas in 1934, and passing through Kansas in 2065. Each story is intimate and personal while intensely impacted by global and societal issues. They are about human connections, both those strengthened and those broken. The parallel pacing of each is perfect, with unexpected suspense about items that might have seemed small in other tales. This book is evocative, thoughtful, and ultimately beautiful.
