Harvest continues the story of the family of the wealthy Paul Werner, last met in Tapestry.
The novel centers around Iris, the daughter of the beautiful, passionate Anna from a secret love affair with Paul Werner. During the turbulent 1960s, Iris and Theo's fragile marriage begins to falter, while their son, Steve, a student at a midwestern university, comes under the sway of the charismatic and radical son of Paul Werner's niece, Meg.
It is in these already difficult times that Steve unwittingly starts a chain of events that throws the family into emotional chaos. Paul, consumed by a lifelong secret he will never divulge - that of Iris' true parentage - helps this troubled family, and in so doing is finally able to find happiness for himself.
