    Read my full review here St Paul, MN, 1946 As little girls, the Malone sisters relied on each other for companionship and affection as their mother remained distant, beating back the demons of her own mysterious childhood Now, as young women ready to embrace promising futures, their lives are instead changed by two tragedies Their powerful bonds of love and loyalty threaten to break under the weight of trauma and loss, secrets and misunderstandings One sister leaves, possibly forever Heart broken and scarred, the other vows to never let go of the invisible thread that runs between them and in the course of her journey, discovers the true meaning of family Susan Welch based some of this family drama on her own birth, childhood, and upbringing There is a lot at play men returning from WWII, distant parents, sibling love and sibling rivalry, illness, unwed mothers, religion, and on and on Frankly, at times, I found all of this to be a bit too much When the author added another element to the plot line, I probably rolled my eyes.On the other hand, to a large extent, this is the childhood that I experienced, growing up in the forties and early 50s in Minnesota I noticed that most of the reviewers were older women, which is probably why the publicist sent the book to me in the first place Oh and one of the characters is named Miriam, always an eye catcher to me, who seldom sees her name in print I remember the tuberculosis sanitarium at the edge of our community, the wh...

    Susan Welch has woven no pun intended a family saga with tremendous attention to detail that retained an ease to read I was initially surprised as the book jumped forward in time but that allowed her to unravel a complex story in a readable space I loved this book s sense of place, time, and character development I also appreciated the early references to the women s movement and Eliza s role as an academic trailblazer, despite her challenges with interpersonal relationships I found the Malone sisters to be a bit prim and virtuous than I may have expected, but it s possible in that era that young women conducted themselves in a ladylike manner than I experienced as a child of the 1980s In all, a really enjoyable book that took me to an era that maybe ...
