From a funeral to a wedding. This time we get the point of view from multiple characters, albeit always the women and from outwards looking inwards on the family. We've also read several books on grief/loss this year told from multiple roles: spouse, sibling, child, etc.

This book also addresses the loss of men in the family through several generations, especially by wars such as WWI and the Civil War. The book was published in 1946; Eudora's brothers had fought overseas during WWII as did her friend John Robinson to whom the book is dedicated. The effects of war and how women dealt with continuing life while the men were gone was personal to her.
