A novel of family, Midwestern values, hard work, fate and the secrets of making a world-class beer.
Two sisters, one farm. A family is split when their father leaves their shared inheritance entirely to Helen, his younger daughter. Her older sister, Edith, struggles to make what most people would call a living. Helen builds one of the most successful light breweries in the country, and makes their company motto ubiquitous: “Drink lots. It’s Blotz.” Where Edith has a heart as big as Minnesota, Helen’s is as rigid as a steel keg. And Edith’s granddaughter, Diana, grows up knowing that the real world requires a tougher constitution than her grandmother possesses.
In this deeply affecting family saga, we meet a cast of lovable and funny characters eager to make their mark in a world that’s often stacked against them. Resolution can take generations, but when it finally comes, we’re surprised, moved, and delighted.
