Born to an unwed mother in 1916 and left with 2 maiden aunts who take in all the unwanted children in the family, Rona learns early that life can be happy or hard but it is never predictable. Follow her as she moves from a poor home to a posh boarding school then back; then is sent to America at 15 to live with a mother she doesn't know and a step-father who doesn't want her. See her determination to return to Scotland to marry her pen pal; watch her bring 3 children into the world during the depression and raise them alone while her husband is off fighting in WWII. Rona and Johnny try to build a better life for their family when they move to America after the war, but life is still full of sharp edges.
