The Hampsons are a family moving towards dissolution while also becoming entangled in webs of love. Evoking nostaliga for times past, Jean Hampson describes childhood in the 30's and 40's in a small town and falls in love with Mitch, a half-orphan raised by his aunt. Their love grows while he is away at war through letters and both parties search for self realizations; 327 pages.
