Summary

Summary

Mothers give birth in the borning room. The dying take their departure there. Outside the Lott family's Ohio farmhouse, the Civil War rages, slavery falls, and the world marvels at the wonder of electricity. Inside, within the walls of the borning room, Georgina Lott will experience her life's greatest turnings. Across the years, she discovers womanhood and first love, experiences the mourning that comes with loss, and, as did her mother and grandmother, at last takes her place in the room as another precious life is about to begin.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lush with similes, metaphors, and allusions so subtly woven into the mesh of the narrative that they enrich without distracting. A memorable novel, rich and resonant in familial love and the strength of connection and tradition.” School Library Journal
“The dimensions of one small room expand to become a universal setting for the grand drama that is life.” Horn Book (starred review)
“A beautifully crafted novel.” Kirkus Reviews
