A fresh and original novel by award-winning author Deirdre McNamer about three siblings who venture out of their staid turn-of-the-century Midwestern childhood into the reckless, go-for-broke twenties.From the Back Cover:
A story of three siblings who venture from their muffled turn-of-the-century Midwestern childhoods into the heedless 1920s. Daisy Lou Malone strikes out for a singing career in New York City. Carlton Malone becomes a hard-drinking hustler on his home turf, while Jerry Malone, lured by the promise of free land, joins other unlikely homesteaders in northern Montana. Each of them yearns to fulfill the promise of a more exciting life in the brash, go-for-broke environment of America between the wars, where the most extravagant dreams can be had for the asking, and the most modest hopes can be dashed in a moment.
