Bess married and had four children. While each book stands alone, this one picks up where the first left off when Bess's alcoholic husband left her with four young children and covers the next several years until her two elder daughters move off the land to attend high school in Chicago.
Bess wasn't too upset when her husband left, as she was never really in love with him. She was a lesbian who tolerated marriage because it was the thing to do, and because she wanted children. Once her husband left, she fell in love with the local school teacher, Anna Mathews who eventually moved in with the family. The ladies faced persecution from a group of strictly religious people who eventually took over the school board and ousted Anna from her beloved job.
Bess II takes us from the days of horses and buggies to the Model T and tractors and follows the lives of two women living together on the prairie. It's a tasteful, loving, honest account of an incredible lady and her unconventional family written by her devoted grandson, and it's not just an historic account; it's a great read! Carve out a day or two because you won't want to put it down.
