Summer 1920: Women's suffrage is almost within grasp, veterans suffer post-WWI ravages, and immigrants endure lingering xenophobia. An Ohio housewife joins forces with her suffragist sister and an ambitious nurse to help her shellshocked husband and a bitter German-American physician face the promises of a new century.
