Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Having grown up in a home where TV reruns of Gunsmoke were their only insight into what a stable and happy family life could be, it's no surprise that Kitty and her siblings learn to rely on themselves to find success in life through unconventional channels. There's Seely who masters the art of creating the perfect wedding cake; Savannah who starts her own family with three common-law husbands to share the parenting and the household chores; Glen who finds love and acceptance with an older man; Jimmy who learns to release the spirits in trees through his skills as a woodcarver. And then there's Kitty, who rides the rodeo circuit. Unable to stop blaming herself for a childhood tragedy she didn't create, Kitty seeks consolation through her love of both horses and women.
