Lisa's grandfather worked hard on the farm where the German family had made their new life and he also drank hard, especially during the depression. Lisa's father tried to follow his dad's example of hard work but somehow there was never the same challenge. There was more time to drink. Lisa's mum was a good woman who believed in the difference between right and wrong. She had inherited her own mother's distaste for the cold barren land, but hid this from her family. Lisa was the third child born to the couple, and during her childhood there was only occasional uneasiness, when her mother was unsure of Lisa's father's whereabouts. When she attempted her gentle but untolerated requests for his physical or emotional presence, he could not stand it. He had so little to give.
