Overview

And the Dark Sacred Night by Julia Glass

Kit Noonan is an unemployed art historian with twins to support, a mortgage to pay, and a frustrated wife who insists that, to move forward, Kit must first confront a crucial mystery about his past. Born to a single teenage mother, he has never known the identity of his biological father.

 
Kit’s search begins with his onetime stepfather, Jasper, a take-no-prisoners Vermont outdoorsman, and ultimately leads him to Fenno McLeod, the beloved protagonist of Glass's award-winning novel Three Junes. Immersing readers in a panorama that stretches from Vermont to the tip of Cape Cod, And the Dark Sacred Night is an unforgettable novel about the youthful choices that steer our destinies, the necessity of forgiveness, and the risks we take when we face down the shadows of our past.

AND THE DARK SACRED NIGHT Once again Julia Glass dazzles us with her prose: “Behind her, from one end of the table to the other, lies a shadowy clutter of objects,  Dutch still life rendered suburban: three geraniums in off-season bloom, a tumbled stack of schoolbooks, a wineglass bearing a ghostly  halo of milk, two yellow pencils (one stippled with tooth marks.)” You know you’re in good hands with writing this fine. Her characters are so beautifully drawn they seem to step out of the book into your life. I especially loved Lucinda who must take care of her politician husband on his first night home from the hospital after he's been crippled by a stroke. Readers of THREE JUNES and THE WHOLE WORLD OVER will welcome back old friends and learn what has become of them.

Writing is lovely, there are sentences she writes, descriptions of events, or a room, or just walking thru a crowded area that just amaze me.  but the story is somewhat depressing and i was  wasn't warned in the book review that this was about a family with not one but gay males......4% of the population may be gay yet there is an overabundance of gay characters on TV -- another one of books, which i started then stopped reading because it just wasn't that good, also dealt   with a gay male son - i just think she's either has a gay family member or is skewing the importance of  this group in her stories...not worth the time...even though the writing can be amazing at times.
