Margaret Stuart, the proud wife of a prosperous Iowa farmer, sets high standards for herself and others. Happy in her marriage, she tries to look the other way when her genial husband, Alec, takes to the bottle. When Elspeth, Margaret's sister, comes to live with them, the young woman is immediately captivated by the beauty and vitality of the farm and by the affection she receives from those around her. But as summer turns into fall and the friendship between Alec and Elspeth deepens, Margaret finds her spirit tested by a series of events that seem as cruel and inevitable as the endless prairie winters. Remembering Laughter marked Wallace Stegner's brilliant literary debut.

WOW to think this was written in the first half of the 20th century amazes me & why I read Stegner before. It's never too late in life to read such a beautifully written story. The two opposing traits of the Scots really comes through - the humor, the dour, despite the reader not quite spot on with the Scot's accent. Loved it.
