On a farm in western Missouri, during the first half of the twentieth century, Matthew and Callie Soames create a life for themselves and raise four headstrong daughters. Jessica will break their hearts. Leonie will fall in love with the wrong man. Mary Jo will escape to New York. And wild child Mathy's fate will be the family's greatest tragedy.

Over the decades they will love, deceive, comfort, forgive - and, ultimately, they will come to cherish all the more fiercely the bonds of love that hold the family together.

    " What wonderful company The Moonflower Vine is! This novel, whose setting is rural Missouri in the early 20th Century, seems kind of old-fashioned at first, and yet, families today have many similar joys and challenges to those of the Soames family and their four daughters. Matthew, the father, is both a farmer and a teacher in a small country school. He and his wife Calllie watch as their girls grow up to make choices that do not always please them, just as today. This book is satisfying because it is well-written and contains universal themes--love of family and of the land, mistaken choices, forgiveness, and grace. The tone of the book is much like that of To Kill a Mockingbird. Highly recommended by Jane Smiley and me! "

    " A true classic, beautifully written with compelling characters you won't want to part with. If you like 'A Thousand Acres,' (which I actually loved even more than this) you'll love this too. "

    " Lovely book! Beautifully written. Reminded me of the wonderful novels I read in high school of that same generation. I've recommended it to everybody. I am looking forward to reading her recently discovered novel Clair de Lune. "
