Rose Smith is born in the very beginning of 1900, the year that ushered in the most rapidly changing century in history. At the age of ten, Rose loses her mother and must learn to become independent and adaptable. As she grows up and begins a family of her own, she and her three daughters are a vital part of the country's rapid growth during a turbulent era. These women--all different, all fiercely-willed--will make courageous, sometimes reckless choices in their lives as they move boldly through a new world. Yet they will be united by an inner strength that will withstand life's most chaotic demands, helping each to accept tragedy, embrace joy and, ultimately, find redemption.

Interesting read for baby boomers. Great story showing the way things have changed so much for women. Also has history from the 1920's to 2000. Interesting to be reminded of the advances made in medicine especially. Shows how fortunate we are to be born just when so many advances were being made (polio vaccine, birth control, ideas about AIDS and cancer.) Also shows how thinking has changed only over the past 60 years or so regarding women and their places in the world. A very good story about a family and its generations of women during the 20th century.
