Summary
The story of Patty and Walter Berglund, a young, Midwestern couple, who start their promising life together with good intentions--wanting to be good partners, good parents, good neighbors, and good citizens. As time passes, however, the family they create loses its way, and the choices they make carry them into a future so at odds with the past that the differences seem irreconcilable
Summary
The idyllic lives of civic-minded environmentalists Patty and Walter Berglund come into question when their son moves in with aggressive Republican neighbors, green lawyer Walter takes a job in the coal industry, and go-getter Patty becomes increasingly unstable and enraged
