From the Publisher
This is the first in a two-book saga that explores the complicated
relationships between mothers and daughters over four generations
near the turn of the 20th century. Fiery Marta leaves Switzerland
determined to find life on her own terms. Marta''s experiences
convince her that only the strong survive -- and she determines to
raise strong children. Marta''s oldest daughter, Hildie, finds her
calling as a nurse which gives her independence if not the respect
of her mother. When Hildie starts a family of her own, she''s
determined that her daughter never doubt her love -- but the
challenges of life conspire against her vow. Each mother is forced
to confront her faulty, but well-meaning desire to help her
daughter find her place in the world.
