About this product
- DescriptionOne of the Best Books of the Year: San Francisco Chronicle It s 1953, and the Langdons are at a crossroads. Walter, their stalwart patriarch, has died unexpectedly, and his wife must try to keep their farm going. But of their five children, only one will remain to work the land. The others scatter to Washington, DC, California, and everywhere in between. As the country moves into the Cold War, through the social revolutions of the 60s and 70s, and into the unprecedented wealth for some of the early 80s, the Langdon children have children of their own: twin boys who are best friends and vicious rivals; a girl whose rebellious spirit takes her to the torious Peoples Temple in San Francisco; and a golden boy who drops out of college to fight in Vietnam leaving behind a secret legacy. Capturing a transformative period through characters we come to kw and love, this second volume in Jane Smiley's epic trilogy brings to life the challenges and rewards of family and home, even in the most turbulent of times.
