"Texas, 1921. A time of abundance. The Great War is over, the bounty of the land is plentiful, and America is on the brink of a new and optimistic era. But for Elsa Wolcott, deemed too old to marry in a time when marriage is a woman's only option, the future seems bleak. Until the night she meets Rafe Martinelli and decides to change the direction of her life. With her reputation in ruin, there is only one respectable choice: marriage to a man she barely knows. By 1934, the world has changed; millions are out of work and drought has devastated the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as crops fail and water dries up and the earth cracks open. Dust storms roll relentlessly across the plains. Everything on the Martinelli farm is dying, including Elsa's tenuous marriage; each day is a desperate battle against nature and a fight to keep her children alive. In this uncertain and perilous time, Elsa - like so many of her neighbors - must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or leave it behind and go west, to California, in search of a better life for her family."--Provided by publisher.

Must read! submitted by erksnerks on July 1, 2021, 2:29pm I couldn’t put this book down. It was fast paced and really created a connection to the characters. I highly recommend it.

Heart wrenching, but amazing submitted by anisaisap on July 7, 2021, 4:07pm Set in the Depression Era so you know to not to expect a happy storyline, but I flew through this book and really rooted for Elsa. I’m new to Kristin Hannah, but will be picking up more of her books after reading this one!

Deep submitted by cldaniels on July 11, 2021, 10:07am A moving story that helps the reader understand that most people want to work and take pride in earning,yet circumstances make that difficult for immigrants and migrants.

Strong contemporary parallels submitted by lizzhuntley on July 26, 2021, 9:37am This was a fantastic book. I think that Kristen Hannah is a very compelling story teller with excellent plot lines (although her particular prose style is a bit bare bones for my own tastes). Reading this book, set during the Dust Bowl when the earth has revolted against its inhabitants and economic migrants are struggling to make ends meet, I was struck by the contemporary parallels to climate change and to debates over immigration and treatment of migrants at the border. This book provides excellent food for thought as well as strong female role models!
