Love, Lost and Found. In the 1880's America's Gilded Age, the Bouchard family struggles and survives--its fate inextricably tied to a nation moving west in search of a proud new spirit, north to opportunities in great cities. A monumental series about the passionate men and women who survive the Civil War to find a new dignity and strength to rebuid a nation. Lovely series which kept me going through all of the series. Great read.
