A story told from the perspective of a mother and daughter in narratives that are 35 years apart. Molly is fifteen in 1955. Her mother, Elaine, is that same age in 1920. There are fascinating historical touchstones in this book including the Spanish flu, the first McDonalds and the 1955 World Series. I usually really like dual timelines, but found it difficult to separate the two voices. Many times I found myself leaving the narrative and having to remind myself which story I was in before continuing. I also found the story arc of the miracle fell flat for me.
