Abstract:

"It is 1999. THe millennium is approaching: predictions of catastrophe blare on the radio, and religious fanaticism is everywhere on the rise. In a small Virginia valley town of Point Royal, the elderly are displaying a marked propensity for outlandish behavior. Everyone here is flowed, wounded, willful and inscrutable, and all are searching for love, in one way or another. Doubt runs rampant, faith is fragile, and happiness tends to be fleeting. But still there is hope. Richard Bausch's "love comedy with sorrows" is a touching empathetic portrayal of family, the one we have, and the ones we make."--Cover.
