It's 1953. Stalwart patriarch Walter Langdon, who with his wife sustained their Iowa farm for three decades, has died, leaving five children looking to the future. One remains to work the land while the others scatter east, west, and in between. Capturing an indelible period in America through the richly drawn characters we come to know and love, this is a beautifully told story of the challenges and rich rewards of family and home, even in the most turbulent of times.
