Elderly historian recreates the story of his grandmother's life in the American West.
I found the flashback format annoying;
the grandmother's life and plight is so much more interesting than the historian's pitiful contemporary problems. And
the ending of the present-day plot is positively gross. And yet, the story of the grandmother's eventually unsuccessful marriage to an intelligent, dynamic but unlucky man who was way ahead of his time resonates.
