This end of World War II novel is centered around the Larsen family that reside in a small Wyoming town. The book is told from different perspectives of siblings in the Larsen family. It showcases how they all are adjusting to life post war.
I loved how loving and supportive the Larsen family is.They are close knit and would do anything to help each other. One of my favorite characters is Vera, a widow with four children. I also really liked her brother Andrew and his new wife, Josette.
