"Where Lilacs Still Bloom" by Jane Kirkpatrick - One woman, an impossible dream, and the faith it took to see it through. German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth grade education and a burning desire to create something beautiful. what begins as a hobby to create an easy peeling pie for her pies becomes Hulda's driving purpose: a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds end with family and community, as she challenges the early twentieth-century expectations for a simple housewife.
