With the unforgettable power and simplicity that made A Separate Peace into a modern classic, this masterful companion volume by John Knowles takes us once again on a warmly nostalgic journey through the poignancy of adolescence and gives us another landmark portrayal of the dark side of the human heart.

In the uneasy peace after World War II, the senior year at Devan School for Boys in New Hampshire changes from a time of fiendships into a stunning drama of tragic betrayal.

In 1945, veteran and former POW Pete Hallam returns to his alma mater, Devon School, to teach and finds his students are concerned about what will happen when peace is declared.

This book is about a small-town boy going to serve his country, and his reaction after his job was done.
