An excellent evocation of rural life during the Great Depression. The reader gets a real "feel" for the time: you can almost taste the dry dust that infiltrated everything from clothes to food and experience the tough optimism of those who lived through that time. The book certainly echoes stories my mother told of growing up near Edmonton through the "Dirty Thirties". The book also celebrates camaraderie and support among a group of women and throws in a surprising twist. A terrific read.

I loved this story of female friendship and solidarity.
