Steinberg has put together a wonderful, moving story.
The Widow's Son is a beautiful and intimate portrayal of both a family struggling with the loss of a father and a country struggling in the aftermath of the Vietnam War.
Set in the suburbs of Chicago during the 1960s, the novel follows the Rosenberg siblings as they learn to cope without their dad and a widow crippled by grief.
The family's tragedy is set against the brilliant backdrop of 1966 America, a country throbbing with post-war unrest and bursting with revolutionary music, fashion and TV.
Funny, nostalgic, and heart-breaking, The Widow's Son is a poignant look at the lengths a family -and country- will go to to survive.
This book is free 8/27 - 8/30.
