Wait For Me, Jack

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
Set near San Francisco, this warm, funny novel about love and marriage follows the fortunes and failures of Jack and Milly for 60 years.

They marry in 1952 and, typical of postwar couples, shift up a class. Optimistic and full of plans, they see themselves living the American dream.

Through the years they cling to each other despite having little in common. But the clinging doesn't preclude infidelity or disappointment, and the social changes they live through impact on their relationship in complex and surprising ways.

Ultimately, though, what holds them together is stronger than what pulls them apart.

Genre: Literary Fiction
