From Publishers Weekly
This 1981 National Book Award winner links three generations of Midwestern women to a form of unison singing in unmeasured time known as plainsong. "Morris writes compellingly of women, of loneliness and contradictory needs, of the half-submerged life, a plainsong that is all too seldom heard," noted PW.

From Library Journal
Morris snagged a National Book Award for this 1980 novel. LJ's reviewer observed that it "is at once a song of the Plains and plainsong melody which illuminates the beauty and complexity of human life." The plot follows the female members of a family living in Nebraska from the late 1800s to modern times. It remains "rich in sensory detail, controlled in style, and powerful in impact" (LJ 1/1/80).
