Summary
In the 1870s, young Flora Meranda is determined to become a doctor like her father, even though she knows her path will be challenging and strewn with obstacles. Flora's story is told through the eyes of her Midwestern friends and family members, women whose lives touch or are touched by Flora and her dream: her cousin Catharine, a Kansas pioneer whose difficult choices of her own lead her little sister Libbet to self-destruct under the weight of her genius; her older sister Macy, whose Civil War romance colors her days into the 20th century; Flora's mother Anna, who strikes out for the wilderness of northern Indiana to make a place for her and her family; Rosa, a young German immigrant who, with Flora, experiences the Midwest's worst natural disaster ever; Kate, mother to a world-famous composer and songwriter, who carefully guards one of the many secrets of Flora's life; Gem, the "college girl" who captures the heart of Flora's son; Luella, the hateful sister-law; Nona, Flora's best friend who steers Flora through town society; Dorothy, Flora's granddaughter who sees Flora for the heroine she is, and Ida, renowned writer and suffragist who uses Flora's story to inspire other women to fight for their rights
