From Library Journal:

Chip Benedict and Alida Struthers serve as the narrators of this internalized biographical tale that covers their lives from after World War I up to the 1960s. Each comes from a background of wealth, power, and social standing. Through a series of flashbacks the narrators come to realize how outside events have influenced their lives. Auchincloss uses their story to show us the frailties of human nature when confronted with politics and morality. This psychological novel is perceptive, elegantly spare, and well crafted. While its complexity may keep it from reaching a wide audience, discerning readers will appreciate its subtle study of human motivation. Barbara Halfen, Akron-Summit Cty. P.L., Ohio
