When Honora decides to marry the dashing salesman Sexton, she finds out very quickly exactly the kind of person her husband really is. Sexton selfishly conjures disaster with a couple of shady deals that lead to ruin thanks in part to the Stock Market crash of 1929. Joining in their fate are the voices of 4 other characters. Although diverse every voice must come together to bring the story to a conclusion. Anita Shreve has re-created a portion of our not too distant past and placed a well defined magniying glass on the union unrest in the early part of the 20th century.
