A mother and daughter, caged with the internal strife of stifled desires, trapped ambition, and silenced dreams, seeking more in the world beyond home.

"There is a change coming in the lives of girls and women."Del Jordan and her mother long for more outside of their small home town of Jubilee, though they cannot say so, at the risk of inviting the ire of the town. In her distinctive literary style, Munro presents a thought-provoking cycle on two women coping with the claustrophobic habits and norms of small town life competing with their greater ambitions and desires to leave. But do all roads ultimately lead back home?
