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.

A choice made in desperate haste sets off a chain of misunderstandings that will divide the sisters and reverberate through three generations of women.
