Rose Shiner's father, Leo, a one-time carnival barker and opera producer, prefers Puccini's world to his own, peddling dinette sets to the furniture trade in the Midwest. Belle, Rose's mother, fights debilitating depression, desperate to step up from her youth on the freezing Canadian prairie to a suburban castle. Rosie struggles mightily to grow in this shadow world, fighting through nightmares to find dreams steady and safe enough to sustain her in daylight.

I loved this audible book!
While this is my first audible book experience, I shall return! That said, this multifaceted piece of writing was beautifully crafted. Having grown up in the Midwest, in a Jewish family, the first portion of the book was familiar and, in fact, sad, for me, personally. I suppose the writer plucked a few strings...Still, I wondered where this plot was going to go.
When the main character /narrator landed in Boston,to attend college, the plot gained speed. I was riveted to this Audible --laughing and weeping along with the narrator.
As I finished listening to this reading, I thought about what a wonderful film--including Detroit"s revival in mind--this would be.
Susan Merson is a formidable writer of personal history, as well as of social history.
Thank you!! fg
