In 1874 tiny Emily makes her appearance in the world. She is the foundation of the Roberts family and often times the bread winner. Her life is lengthy and she uses it wisely, not necessarily the path her family will follow. Emily is an exceptional listener and a friend to everyone. Yet Another Fallen Star spans 135 years, telling the story of Emily, her children, her grandchildren, and their extended family. Against a backdrop of rapid social change, we see their strengths and weaknesses, challenges and choices, with serious and humorous consequences.
