2014 book 250

Jane Smiley's Some Luck
Lovely, lovely book about an Iowan farm family, from 1920 to 1953 (each chapter covers a year). It starts with a young farmer meditating about his life, and then quickly shifts to his baby son's perspective. The book covers the young parents and their five very different children as they learn and grow--and it's all just so satisfying. There's romance, war, babies, squabbling, farming--and even spies. Just super well done. A.
