Scarred by the senseless death of their son and baffled by the engulfing chaos of the 1960s, Joe Allston and his wife Ruth, have left the East Coast for a California retreat. And although their new home looks like Eden, it also has serpents: Jim Peck, a messianic exponent of drugs, yoga and zipless sex; and Marian Catlin, an attractive young woman whose otherworldly innocence is far more appealing--and far more dangerous.

An intellectual, piercing, poignant story of a woman stricken with cancer, and her will to live. The prose is truly beautiful, but this is no quick or easy read. I highly recommend Stegner's writing.
