In 1954, nineteen-year-old Karlissa is already widowed and the mother of two young children. As she steps off the train, she begins a new life with her in-laws on the familys Oregon farm. Spending her days cooking, washing, and caring for her children, Karlissa settles into farm life, grateful to have a place to live while she heals from her grief and ponders her future. It seems like an unlikely place to find romance, but when Ken joins the family one night for a game of cards, Karlissa knows, looking into eyes the color of a clear summer sky, that she wants to be with him.
It isnt that easy, of course. Her little boy is afraid Karlissa will forget all about his daddy. Her sister-in-law, never very welcoming to begin with, behaves more and more coldly toward her for reasons Karlissa cant understand. And to complicate matters even further, another man begins courting her as well.
Told against the backdrop of caring for Ken in his final days, fifty years later, Karlissas story is one of devotionof a man to his family, of a wife to her husband, of children to their parents. Whether theyre on the farm, packing up the station wagon to move to Las Vegas, gazing at the ocean on the Oregon coast, or waiting for test results in the doctors office, Ken and Karlissa prove that despite lifes twists and turns, true love can survive.
