Great Book

Beautifully written, i loved the story, at first it took me a chapter to get into it, but then it took off and i did not want to put it down. The story spans 30 years, the rivalry between two sisters and of a stranger who changes both their lives. It starts in the Prairie Dust Bowl in the 30's and later in the years following the war, and then toNew York. Written very well and i did enjoy this author, she was new to me.

I didn't find any of the characters likeable, but I still really enjoyed this book. Extremely well written.

This novel portrays one woman from childhood into middle age whose obsession with a man 15 years her senior began when she was nine, and ended with a child born out of wedlock and an alienation from her sister, who was infatuated with the same man. This man's apparent charisma allowed him to find a way to make an indelible mark on both of the sisters' hearts. What a waste of both women's lives - one that ended tragically and too soon and the other left with the remnants of tattered relationships
