"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A young girl reminisces about the family history her grandfather has described to her, tying the narrative together with the poetically named plums he used to joke about with his brothers when they worked as boys in a mine--a story he makes so vivid that his granddaughter is prepared to believe it two generations later. A nostalgic slice of social history as represented by one hard-working Italian-American family, handsomely illustrated in sweeping impressionistic watercolors.
