Jack and Joy Griffin's lives seem to always come back to Cape Cod, where they honeymooned, as they experience the ups and downs of life, including the deaths of Jack's parents, the marriage of their daughter and Jack and Joy's divorce. Reprint. A best-selling book.
With his father's ashes in an urn in his trunk, Griffin drives to Cape Cod for the wedding of his daughter's friend, a trip that back memories of his childhood summers at the cape, and his honeymoon there, when he and his wife made grand plans for their married life. Their plans came true--a New England home, family, an academic life--but somewhere along the way their marriage began to fray. One year later, Griffin heads out to Cape Cod once again, this time for his daughter's wedding, but now his mother's ashes are in the trunk, and both he and his wife are seeing other people. Will the idyllic dreams of Cape Cod, weddings, and youth be completely undone by the fickle whims of life? Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo (EMPIRE FALLS) spins out a breezy yet deeply heartfelt tale about losing your parents, losing your faith in love, and in the continual American hunt for a better tomorrow.
