Ellen Gilchrist's 'Acts of God' a treasure trove of love and humor

Thirteen years ago, author Ellen Gilchrist did a collection of stories arranged in chronological order and devoted entirely to members of the Hand family. We meet the precocious cousin Rhoda Manning at the age of 8, defying her older brothers and sisters at age 10, trying to lose her virginity at age 14 and succeeding two years later. Our last view of her comes more than 40 years later, when she is running off to Florence, Italy, with a young lover.
