This is the story of two sisters spanning from the early 50s to the present. We are presented with Jo who is a complete tomboy and loves sports (and as it turns out women) and her sister Bethy who is a lovely girly girl. The girls grow up and are coming of age in the 60’s so there is a lot of protesting, drug and sexual experimentation. The book talks of the limited choices women had as late as the 60’s as far as who they could love (one sister loves a women, the other loves an black man) and their overall role in society. This is a touching story spanning decades that will have you laughing and crying.
