The Sweetheart Season

By Karen Joy Fowler

It's 1947 and optimism governs the land - nowhere more so than in the town of Magrit, Minnesota. Headquarters of one of the nation's largest manufacturers of breakfast cereal, Magrit is also home base to the company's magazine, which dispenses housewifely advice to millions of women across the country. But in rural Magrit, the boys who marched off to war don't seem to want to come back to make a home. For Magrit's young women, the future is decidedly uncertain - until the company founder decides to form them into a ball team - the Sweetwheat Sweethearts. But Magrit's slow and steady ways come a cropper. Ghosts are seen. Mistrust is sown. And hearts break.
