    Ben cleared some of his land to grow corn, and planted some fruit trees. In its first westward surge, the young country had bitten off more than it could chew, and it was suffering hard for its greed. Many intended to take their wives and children. As conditions east of the Appalachians worsened, people there were pulling up and heading west, in search of the fabled American second chance. Nancy tended the corn, too, those first two summers, while he went out hunting, his favorite way of life, roaming the wilderness.

    Iraq would invade Kuwait soon, in two or three months. The Miami I knew of was the place of extremely wealthy, the place where rich people spend the winter - I knew absolutely nothing about the poverty and hardships of her community. As conditions east of the Appalachians worsened, people there were pulling up and heading west, in search of the fabled American second chance. The house was empty and Matan now missed his sister.

    Her new husband was Ben Kelsey, twelve years her senior. Since this made him the only physician in the entire territory it gave him a special cachet. While this is a memoir it almost reads like a novel in part due to the detail with which she tells her story. The story starts with a phone call that awakens the woman. We meet the people who support her and those who challenge her. Eventually she had an idea and bought her daughter a huge expensive puzzle of over a thousand pieces.
