my take: What is history, if not the truth according to us?
Set in the American depression, the tale of a city girl doing WPA work in small town and the family she boards with. Secrets abound in the small town, as well as lots of folk lore about their history.
I loved this behind-the-scenes kind of look at how history is recorded - reminding me that who tells and who records it are what mostly make "history."
