Summary
1914. Andrew Houghton longs to be a veterinarian, but is fated for a life in the mines, picking rock alongside his father. Then his aunt, Eveline Kiser, arranges for her husband to secure Andrew an apprenticeship on the railroad. Wilhelm Kiser, a German immigrant, has a well-paying job as a brakeman, and a secure pension. But on Andrew's first week an accident leaves him severely injured. Wracked with guilt, Wilhelm agrees to his wife's pleas to leave Pittsburgh and swap their row house for a rough-and-tumble farm. Life on the Pennsylvania farm is slow to yield and their farmhouse is in disrepair. Neighbor Lily Morton is tough on the outside, but bears her own secret scars inside. Andrew's bond with her grows, even as anti-German sentiment spreads across America with the outbreak of World War I. -- adapted from page [4] of cover
