Summary
Anna Larson's daughter, Lauren, is confused, brokenhearted, and misguided. It's the late 19500s and Lauren is off at college, feeling alienated from her mother. But when an illness strikes Lauren, she returns to her mother, the river and the Inn at Shining Waters to recuperate. When it becomes apparent that Lauren's mysterious illness is, in fact, a pregnancy, her rich and manipulative paternal grandmother, Eunice, insists Lauren marry the baby's father and that they live with Eunice so she can provide for the new family. After the birth of the baby Sarah, Anna invites her daughter and granddaughter back to the river for a respite from an unhappy home life. There, Lauren begins to appreciate the person her mother is becoming -- and she loves the river. However, old hurts and arguments send Lauren, jealous and angry, back to her grandmother yet again. As time passes, Lauren is now a mother to her own defiant teenager, and faces a new crisis -- one that sends the entire family into a tailspin
