(From the publisher):
Bill Chambers has come home from the Second World War with several fingers of his right hand missing but with the will to restore his family life intact. He wants the best for his wife and three children, and with his steady job at the hardware store the future looks promising. Yet as that future disperses the family, generations pull apart and come together again, bonds deepen and widen, loyalties are tested, and love creates its own snares.
