Summary
"[Emmaline] Nelson and her sister Birdie grow up in the hard, cold, rural, Lutheran world of strict parents, strict milking times, and strict morals. Marriage is preordained, the groom practically predestined. Though it's 1958, southern Minnesota did not see changing roles for women on the horizon. Caught in a time bubble between a world war and the ferment of the 1960s, Emmy doesn't see that she has any say in her life, any choices at all. Only when Emmy's fiancé shows his true colors and forces himself on her does she find the courage to act--falling instead for a forbidden Catholic boy, a boy whose family seems warm and encouraging after the sere Nelson farm life"--
Summary
Coming of age in her parents' mid-20th-century rural Lutheran world, Emmeline and her sister, Birdie, are swept up in an ugly family secret when she tries to step outside of strict expectations and marry according to her heart
