Summary (From the publisher):

For the first time, the entire Mustian cycle in one volume, with a preface by the author.

Rosacoke Mustian initially "stood up, live from her first paragraph" in one of Reynolds Price's earliest short stories, A Chain of Love, and Price made the beginning of her life with Wesley Beavers the subject of his first novel, A Long and Happy Life, 1962. Eventually, Price spent two more novels, A Generous Man, 1966 and Good Hearts, 1988, with this single family, telling a story of devotion and endurance.
