Meissner places her latest novel in 1918 Philadelphia where a mother and her three daughters try to find the American Dream amidst chaos and death. In a world-weary and weak after the Great War, people only wanted to move on and forget the horrors they had experienced, but there would be no rest, no time to grieve. In 1918 the Spanish Flu pandemic swept the globe, leaving millions dead.  Pauline wants her daughters, Willa, Evelyn and Maggie to have a better life than she had, but the family faces tremendous odds in a city struck down by disease. I loved this book, I felt like I was right there alongside the sisters as they tried to overcome the tremendous challenges and heartbreak that they faced. A book that will hold readers rapt
