Summary
Robert and Darla Quinlan are tenured at Florida State University. Their marriage, forged in the fervor of anti-Vietnam War protests now bears the fractures of time, and the couple is trapped in an existence of morning coffee and solitary jogging and separate offices. The divisions in Robert's own family are more apparent: he has almost no relationship with his brother Jimmy, who became estranged from the family as the Vietnam War intensified. Their father, a veteran of WWII, is coming to the end of his life, and aftershocks of war ripple across their lives once again when Jimmy refuses to appear at his father's bedside
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain presents the story of a single North Florida family shaped and overshadowed by the Vietnam War and the estrangements between the fathers, sons and brothers who supported or protested against it
