Jonathan Beecher, a middle-aged widower and small-town store owner, has never asked for much. But lately, all too much is being asked of him. The bombing of Pearl Harbor plunges America into World War II and deeply fractures Jonathan's own family. His eldest son, a civilian contractor, is trapped on a Japanese-occupied island in the Pacific. Jonathan's feckless younger son ignores his father's pleas to stay home and joins the army.

I thought this was a terrible book. I am a spiritual person, but this really leaned too hard on the God issue. It jumped back and forth from the fathers life and his issues, to his children’s lives. There was no real gripping substance with the story. Not even the narrator could pull me in. Depressing. blehhhhh
