It is a few days before Peyton Worthington’s wedding in 1994 when a mysterious package arrives from Australia. Peyton’s mother, Angela, is visibly moved by its contents, a first edition of W.B. Yeats’s poetry with evocative bookplate. Set in a Pennsylvania steel town, "Silver Apples of the Moon" focuses on the universal themes of love and loss embodied in Yeats’s radiant poem, "The Song of Wandering Aengus," from which the title comes. At its center is the love affair of Angela D’Agnese and Steve Ryle and the lasting ripple effect his fateful tour in Vietnam has on their lives. The action in this epic family saga, spans thirty years, beginning in working class Millmont and moving on, as the plot unfolds, to detail both life on an elegant family estate before taking the reader on a journey to such diverse destinations as New York, Australia and the mysterious Villa Indochine.

From the Author:

Little did we know when we embarked on "Silver Apples of the Moon", in 1993 that it would take nearly 20 years to complete.

(Just to be clear, we were not writing for two decades straight; there were long stretches of time when the book lay fallow.) After the plot was basically laid down, we added and took away, "murdered our darlings" honed and polished and read the entire work aloud numerous times. Most memorable were those occasions when our lovely mother, who was then descending into dementia, was present. We'd read a passage and all of a sudden she would exclaim from across the room, "That's ridiculous, no one talks that way!"

We wrote the first version of the book in about a year, passing the sections back and forth like a long, literary version of The Exquisite Corpse. We soon realized that while we were good academic writers, we were lousy at things like dialogue and character development. But we plugged away, eventually hiring two different editors. But the most valuable thing was that we kept writing.
