On a summer evening in the blue-collar town of Amicus, Kansas, the Campbell family is gathered at a birthday dinner for their ailing patriarch. When the youngest sibling passes out in his devil’s food cake, they take up the unfinished business of his sobriety. With sure-handed storytelling, Janet Peery reveals a family at its best and worst, and yet its unbreakable bonds.
