Summary
"Elizabeth Stone weaves her own family stories among the stories of more than a hundred people of all backgrounds, ages, and regions, providing ways to interpret our own stories and their roles in our lives. She examines stories of birth, death, work, money, and romance, and she shows how stories about our most ancient ancestors may provide guidance at milestone moments, as well as how stories about our newest family members carve out places for them."--Jacket
