An absolutely delicious read and made me fall in love with gritty, dusty American southern Texas people that survived the Depression! A correction to your description though...Jeanine is the eldest daughter who actually 'single-mindedly devotes herself to rebuilding the farm and their lives' and is the central character. How these women survived the perils of their times is accurately documented through the chronological lens of the author.

There seems to be a wonderful recipe for historical novels written by women with journalistic backgrounds combined with imagination, talent and the discipline of constructing a fine piece of art! A must read for everyone reminding us of the terrors nature can reap on all of us.
