This family history centered around three women from three generations spans the Civil War through the Jazz Age. Fans of Sallie Bingham’s work will especially appreciate her parents Mary and Barry’s romance that unfolds in letters and finally results in marriage. Bingham beautifully demonstrates an inheritance of emotion, morality, ideology, and most lasting of all, irreverence.
Alfred A. Knopf (1989)
