Living through the Great Depression, WWII, and beyond, and all the while carrying the shared grief (and secrets) of a fire that consumed their family farmhouse and ended the life of their sister, Milly, in the 1920s.During the early days of the Great Depression, young Edith runs away from home in Paradise Creek, Idaho with her boyfriend, Walt.

They travel across the U.S. and end up in the south, picking cotton on a plantation. Its hard work, but theyre together, making it and happy until one day someone is murdered and the blame falls on Edith.From HOW THE SWEET HOURS PERISHED (BOOK-1):Miss Jean taught her how to pick cotton, how to carry bags and the necessity of gloves if you wanted to last. Walt began at the other end of the field with the men, but, after a couple weeks, ended up together with Edie and Miss Jean and Olivia, a massive, dense woman who intimidated all of the women and most of the men by her appearance alone on first meeting her, but once she opened her mouth, most changed their minds.

Olivia sang gospel like it was alive in her belly and the only way to get it out was for it to escape through that large mouth of hers that formed words like a sculptor forms limbs with chisel and hammer. It was so loud and thunderous and mighty that one wondered if there really were any hard times, or if Olivia herself knew she was dirt poor, but it didnt matter. Edith watched those dark hands, ruddy with dried blood from picking, blistering and years of being under the yoke, and she wondered how their owner could spread them and raise them high and still thank God for being alive to use them.
