  • Yet, Here We Are

    It is 1948. Feeling trapped within her farm-life existence as a young wife and mother, Elizabeth harbors a fervent desire to escape to the city of Chicago for a brief respite. While there, she is met with both profound love and devastating loss—experiences that will haunt her for years to come.


    It is 1975. An unexpected visitor from Elizabeth’s past in Chicago upends her quiet life. Meanwhile, one of her daughters finds herself unwittingly caught up in the counterculture battle for control over the emerging Twin Cities’ food co-op community, and the other begins to experience mysterious visions. Together, their search for conclusions leads to astonishing discoveries that will impact the entire family.


    Yet, Here We Are weaves together the threads of how forbidden love and poignant loss shape the life of one woman with the tale of a tumultuous time in our history that changed the course of food co-ops as we know them today.
