A gifted writer's view of a rushed wartime marriage, the struggles of one couple, the challenges of parenting, and the perplexities of coping with the head-spinning social and cultural changes of the past 60 years. Tyler's delicate, nonjudgmental presentation of the Anton family is typical of her style. No one is innocent of wrongdoing or insensitivity, but no one is evil or intent on harm.
