Synopsis : When Richard MacEwan's brother dies in 1949, a victim of a suspicious hunting accident, troubling secrets kept by some women in the family begin to emerge and paint a moving picture of infidelity, faith, and starting over. A first novel.
Critique: In 1949, Americans were poised on the edge of a golden age of seeming prosperity and peace. Everyone had a job, the middle class was expanding, television brought wonders into living rooms, and every night at 5 o'clock, cocktails tinkled in their glasses. But Robert Clark uncovers the reality behind the illusion, as the MacEwan family, in the depth of winter, realizes how fragile that prosperity and the ties that hold family together are, acknowledging the moral ambiguities of American culture. First-time novelist Robert Clark has a Cheeveresque penchant for dialogue and detail, rendering this family's dissolution with care.
