And so there they were, Kathryn, Luke, and Starling, in the same neighbourhood in that small, Midwestern town, in the early 1930s, ages five and/or six, each alone yet in and among their disparate families - and then they met and became somehow bigger, an inseparable threesome; it was a meeting that would transform their lives.And yet none of them could have known then, that innocent summer of 1931, that something as simple and ordinary as a tow-headed boy pulling an already rusting and creaky red wagon with wobbling wheels down a dusty suburban street and coming upon a pigtailed tomboy in overalls just around the corner from his house and asking if she'd like a ride, and the two of them setting off, trading turns pulling or sometimes pushing one another, racing and laughing and screaming down summer's streets, then stopping to talk and generally revel in the leafy June day, and each other, and then before too long happening upon what was surely - they both actually said it at the time - surely the prettiest boy either one of them had ever set eyes on in their entire young lives, sitting along the side of the road making mud pies...not a one of the three of them could possibly have known then the profound and lifelong transforming effect that this single chance meeting would have (the dominoes fall).
