Beschreibung:

In prose as clean and beautiful as the stark prairie setting, "The Plain Sense of Things" tells the stories of three generations of a western Nebraska family. These tales of sorrow and hope are connected by the sinews of need and flawed love that keep families together. A farm wife struggles to support her children after the death of her second husband; a young woman grapples with the shift from girlhood to motherhood; World War II wreaks havoc on those left behind; and a failing farmstead breaks a family's heart. Amid hardship and change, these interwoven stories illuminate the resilience and dignity--and the subtle sweetness--of a life lived in clear view of the plain sense of things.
