Synopsis

This is the engrossing story of four generations of women, going back to Great-Grandmother GrandMin....

'Who did you say you were?" GrandMin asks Angela, and not for the first time. Angela answers patiently, but she cannot get used to the fact that GrandMin does not know her. Twelve-year-old Angela, her brother, Brian, and their parents are spending their vacation with Gram and GrandMin. Angela is lonely in her mother's hometown of Gatesville, once called Jericho. There are no young people her age in the town, and their visit has to be prolonged when Gram sprains her ankle.

In alternate sections Janet Hickman seamlessly interweaves the past and present as the lives of her protagonists, Min and Angela, unfold. This spare, beautifully written, emotion-packed story is unforgettable.
