Riassunto: In 1947, the bucolic mill town of Magrit, Minnesota, confronts the terrible problem that none of its young men want to return home, leaving the town's girls romantically bereft, until the old mill owner forms a ball team and puts them on the road. By the author of Sarah Canary.
Recensione: Though most men had returned to their hometowns after World War II, few came back to the tiny village of Magrit, Minnesota. Irini, a nineteen year-old woman, works in the Scientific Kitchen at Margaret Mill, a cereal factory, with most of Magrit's other eligible bachelorettes. Hoping to promote his business and attract some suitors for his staff, the owner of the mill forms a women's baseball team called the Sweetwheat Sweethearts. Irini, who wields a fearsome throwing arm, strong from kneading bread dough, is the team's star center fielder and her successes, failures, and revelations on and off the ball field are endearingly recalled by her now grown daughter.
