The year is 1992, and Eddy, Jessie's husband of fifty seven years has just died of lung cancer. Sitting in the kitchen during the first hours after Eddy's death, Jessie begins to reminisce about their lives together, and finds herself steeped in the many memories of the past.

Married in the heart of the Great Depression, Jessie and Eddy live their day to day lives against a backdrop of change and upheaval in America and the world beyond. From economic crisis to the advent of World War II, they struggle to make ends meet and keep the family farm afloat.

Striving to make the transition from teacher to farm wife and mother, Jessie faces many challenges, from butchering her first chicken, to running a household on a dollar a week! Will the love she and Eddy share be enough to get them through the hard times?
