Synopsis: Returning to the scene of his happiest childhood memories in the hope of reaffirming his beliefs, Jam Knowles is shattered by an encounter with Charmaine, a young reporter who reawakens the ghosts of Jam's past during an interview. Tour.

Review: The "good family" to which the title of Peter J. Smith's third novel refers are the Knowles, a WASPy clan that's been in New England longer than anyone cares to trace. The unfolding of the lives of five siblings is revealed through the eyes of John (Jam) Knowles, the middle child who gets caught in some ferocious nostalgia while trapped in a storm at the family's old summer house. There he thinks about the family in new ways, bringing authenticity and vigor to the ties that bind a New England clan.
