A new lens through which to see the Dust Bowl.

A novel has made an impact on you when you find yourself wondering what the characters are doing after you finish the last chapter.  It's the "dirty thirties" and one Kansas farmer refuses to let music and the arts disappear from the children's education.  Enter Miss Aldine McKenna, Scottish immigrant.  This work of historical fiction unfolds with rich characters whose reactions to life's curves seem believable.  The Price family does leave Kansas for California, but not all of them can stay away-- not from Kansas, and not from the scandalous relationship formed there.
