Silver Apples of the Moon
Rebecca James (Author)
DescriptionIt is a few days before Peyton Worthington's wedding in 1994 when a mysterious package arrives from Australia. Peyton's mother, Angela, is visibly moved by its contents, a first edition of W.B. Yeats's poetry with evocative bookplate. Set in a Pennsylvania steel town, "Silver Apples of the Moon" focuses on the universal themes of love and loss embodied in Yeats's radiant poem, "The Song of Wandering Aengus," from which the title comes. At its center is the love affair of Angela D'Agnese and Steve Ryle and the lasting ripple effect his fateful tour in Vietnam has on their lives. The action in this epic family saga, spans thirty years, beginning in working class Millmont and moving on, as the plot unfolds, to detail both life on an elegant family estate before taking the reader on a journey to such diverse destinations as New York, Australia and the mysterious Villa Indochine.
