Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life. But as the sixties begin, the world around them is changing fast.
Soon nothing about their future seems to be what they'd hoped for or expected.
Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child, while Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, putting the truth of what - and who - she really desires to one side.
