Jenilee Lane's dreams are as narrow as the sky is wide. She doesn't imagine any good could come out of the tornado that has ripped across the Missouri farmland where she's made her home. But some inner spark compels her to take action. To rescue her elderly neighbour, Eudora Gibson, from the cellar in which she's been trapped. To collect from the devastated landscape fragments of life that lie strewn about in the tornado's wake. Eudora Gibson didn't think Jenilee had it in her. But the girl she's hardly noticed for years is now surprising her - stepping forward with a bravery that inspires Eudora to face her own bitter past.

Yes this book is a predictable bit of fluff, nevertheless, and to my surprise, I still enjoyed it. I liked how the characters evolve and deal with their past meanness and judgement of others less fortunate. Those "have not's" come into their own and surprise this small town. This is not usually my thing, but somehow it worked; it was a nice change of pace.

The characters find hope and new aspects of themselves in the weeks following a tornado. I didn't find myself relating to the characters all that much, but it was nice to read about people learning about themselves and each other.
