A sad look into the lives of an ordinary middle class family in Long Island in the 50s and 60s. Their troubles were our troubles, their view of the world, ours.

A lot like "Flesh and Blood"; a story that follows one family from the parents' meeting to the coming of age of the youngest child. This was hard for me to put down. The ending leaves you wondering what will happen to this family.

I like her books. Much of it is written from the children's point of view of adult life. Good read.
