When three fatherless children are also abandoned by their mother, practical 11-year-old Mary decides that she and her 14-year-old brother Karl and baby brother should set off by railroad boxcar to Argus, North Dakota, to live with their Aunt Fritzie. Along the way the baby is kidnapped and Karl drifts away on his own. Multiple narrators tell the story of their lives spanning 40 years.

There was some dark humor in the book, but for the most part it was a stream of depressing, self-destructive incidents by real, but flawed characters.

I finished this book today. I have to say, I didn't really like most of the characters. But somehow I still found the book interesting. Thanks for sharing, pinklady60! I hope your 69th & 70th were wonderful, too!
