Synopsis : NATIONAL BESTSELLER
In this luminous story of family life--the first novel by Susan Minot, author of the highly acclaimed Evening--the seven Vincent children follow their Catholic mother to Mass and spend Thanksgiving with their father's aging parents who come from a world of New England priviledge. As they grow older, they meet with the perplexing lives of adults. Susan Minot writes with delicacy and a tremendous gift for the details that decorate domestic life, and when tragedy strikes she beautifully mines the children's tenderness for each other, and their aching guardianship of what they have.
Synopsis: A novel of childhood which has been translated into 12 languages and won the 1987 Prix Femina Etranger. On the coast of New England, Augustus and Rosie Vincent and their seven wildly irrespressible children live a life of old-style privilege, ritual Catholicism and unmitigated chaos.
