A Peach of a Book
Near the end of this truly wonderful novel, there's an observation that in a place whose history predated the nation's founding by over a hundred years, people had constantly wondered what now -- had wanted to anticipate the future while being inexorably driven by the past. This beautifully conceived and executed epic is tragic from the outset, yet fundamentally optimistic in its vision.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I lived on the Eastern Shore for only 4 years, in the 1960s, yet those experiences have shaped, even haunted, the rest of my life. Aside from the pure joy of reading it, this book gave me lasting gratitude that my own family was spared the choices Thomas and Beal had to make. There HAS been progress, even though we should have done more. -- catwak
