Sibyl Trimble does everything she can to keep her family together. Before falling in love with a handsome, penniless hobo, she lived a life of new cars, speakeasies dances, and fancy cloche hats. Then the Great Depression hits Oklahoma. The wind blows topsoil away, hundreds of jobless men hang around town, and the economy falls apart. Even Fremont, her strong, stable husband, grows discouraged and considers leaving as they struggle to put food on the table. When disaster strikes again, will Sibyl and Fremont move on to California or try to survive in Oklahoma? Neither option sounds promising.

I enjoyed this book. This book continues the story of Siby, Fremont and her family. Series are fun to read because you get more of the story then just one. It adds a depth to the characters.
I thought the book had a more journalistic feel to it since it jumped forward in time quite a bit throughout the story. I was caught up in what was happening and wanted to know what happened next. I think it’s really cool this series is based on Kathryn Spurgeon’s family.
The characters were well written. Some I liked better then others. Each person added to the story.
I’m looking forward to reading the next novel by Kathryn
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
