uplifting post-appocalyptic novel

I describe this novel as "uplifting" because it focuses on people reaching out to help one another, instead of going on a killing, looting rampage, as is usual with such works. Also, we get a look at the spiritual, as well as physical, consequences of nuclear war. There is even a little humor, as in the discussion between Tonie Marie's parents and the psychic broaker, about whether or not Tonie should be reincarnated into a two-headed calf. Also, they chose an excellent narrator. Very good book.
