Summary
It was a Sunday night in 1944 when Pearls salesman husband left. Abandoned, she raises their three children alone: Jenny, high-spirited and determined, nurturing to strangers but distant to those she loves; Cody, a wild and incorrigible youth possessed by the lure of power and money; and sweet, clumsy Ezra, who never stops yearning for the perfect family that could never be his own. Now grown, they have reunited as Pearl lies dying. With anger, with hope, each has a harsh and dazzling story to tell, unlocking the past with all its secrets. Heart-hammering, wisefrom start to finish, superb entertainmentNew York Times Book Review
