Abstract:

[This] novel is a vivid portrait of an American family in the middle decades of the twentieth century. [It] captures the social, political, and spiritual upheavals of those decades through the experiences of a working-class couple, John and Mary Keane, their four children, and the changes radiating through their Catholic community on Long Island. While Michael and Annie Keane taste the alternately intoxicating and bitter first fruits of the sexual revolution, their older, more tentative brother, Jacob, lags behind, until he finds himself on the way to Vietnam. Meanwhile, Clare, the youngest child of their aging parents, seeks to maintain an almost saintly innocence ... [The book] alive with the passions and tragedies of a determining era in our history, portrays the clash of traditional, faith-bound life and modern freedom, while also capturing ... the joy, sorrow, anger, and love that underpin, and undermine, what it is to be a family.-Dust jacket.
