Overview

In 1930s Idaho, as the sun bakes what's left of the harvest and the bank stands ready to foreclose, the help of good neighbors is the difference between surviving or moving on. Nell and Aggie are on the edge of losing their years of devotion to their farm, and when townsfolk learn the true nature of their relationship, any hope of credit to the next harvest dries up.

Just when Nell and Aggie are considering loading their last possessions on a wagon, a married couple on the run from the law offers a solution. No one, not even the town's grim patriarchs, can predict what will happen next.

Originally published by Naiad Press - 1992.

The story begins with Clara Striker in Chicago, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, being mad at her husband for landing himself in jail overnight. Leaving her to fend for herself in a city she hates, where she has no friends or family, looking for free shelter. Meanwhile in Grassy Flats Aggie and Nell face a crisis of their own when they find out the hard way that the hired hand saw them kissing in the barn. Suddenly the only friend they have is Tess who helps her husband by working as a waitress in his diner. And Tess's support, much appreciated by Nell and Aggie, is limited because her husband shares the rural town's negative sentiments of their actions. Clara, Hank, Aggie, Nell, and Tess all impact each other in Grassy Flats, Idaho. Two people's lives are enriched by the impact while the rest continue to struggle, some together, and some alone.
