Synopsis: Beneath the quiet surface of life in Old Kane, Illinois, love, cruelty, murder, and friendship drive the destinies of Worthy and Willa Giberson and their boy Cappy in this novel spanning 1925 to 1950.

From the Inside Flap: "Out jumps life (and death) in everyday drama, played out against a backdrop of Prohibition, the Depression and World War II. . . . Rolens' account of small-town America from 1925 to 1950 is interesting from a historical perspective. But it's also, in the words of Worthy, 'A story, plain and simple.'" -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A satisfying, authentic, all-American charmer." -- Kirkus Reviews

Beneath the quiet surface of life in Old Kane, Illinois, love, cruelty, murder and friendship drive the destinies of Worthy and Willa Giberson and their boy Cappy in this best-seller spanning 1925 to 1950. The novel is the story of a small town and its vanishing way of life as well as the story of the Gibersons. As they and their neighbors deal with an approaching world war that they naively believe will not touch them, they deal with more subtle wars already in their midst.

"Filled with gentle humor and quietly compelling characters, Rolens' novel is an affectionate look at small-town life that never fails to engage the reader." -- Booklist (American Library Association)

"Humorous and engaging dialogue punctuate this nostalgic story of rural America, in which the complexity of small-town relationships brings depth to the murder-mystery plot that ensues." -- Publishers Weekly

"A finely honed character study of a town and its inhabitants. . . . A reminiscence of a simpler time, deftly combined with an engaging story of human foibles that never stoops to sentimentality. Recommended." -- Library Journal, starred review
