I Elisabeth L’orange Fürsts bok danner fire generasjoner kvinner i en russisktalende familie i Moldovas hovedstad Chisinau hovedstrukturen i fortellinger om livshistorier, hverdagsliv og samfunnsforhold i endring. Vi får innblikk i tiden før og under Sovjetunionen, men også i et postsovjetisk samfunn som feiret uavhengigheten, men som raskt råket opp i språk-/etnisitets-konflikter og økonomisk krise. En konsekvens har vært stor strid rundt historiefortellingene og virkelighetsfortolkningene. Befolkningen rives mellom prorumensk og prorussisk, vestlig og østlig identitet og orientering.
