As the story of Matthew and Callie Soames and four daughters unfurls— not unlike an evanescent moonflower— we witness moments of betrayal, deceit, heartbreak, and escape in the heart of 20th century America. But we also share profound moments of loyalty, honesty, healing, and homecoming. We like the way the moonflower vine climbs across the Soames‘ front porch and the way this modest, intimate classic twines into our reading lives.
