Forty-year-old Malena is about to give birth to her ninth child. She loves her family and her LDS culture, but she is also an artist. Will there ever be an opportunity to develop her special talents?
The rebellious teenage daughter only complicates the picture. And the husband's freedom to develop his talents, and his demanding church calling as bishop only exacerbate the problem. [publisher website]
