Growing up in hardscrabble Kentucky in the 1920s, with their mother dead and their stepfather an ever-present threat, Bertie Fischer and her older sister Mabel have no one but each other--with perhaps a sweetheart for Bertie waiting in the wings. But on the day that Bertie receives her eighth-grade diploma, good intentions go terribly wrong. A choice made in desperate haste sets off a chain of misunderstandings that will divide the sisters and reverberate through three generations of women.

Several generations of women - sisters, daughters, mothers and nieces - in an incredible tangle of abuse, tragedy and misunderstanding. Characters and places are cleverly woven together over a period of 75 years, and come to life in a remarkable way. It's the kind of book that makes you want to shout out, "Wait! Don't do that!"
