1929 Buffalo, New York. A beautiful July day, the kind one waits for through the long, cold winters. Sadie Feldstein, nee Cohen, looks out her window at the unexpected sight of her brother, Irving. His news is even more unexpected, and unsettling: their elder sister, Godie, has vanished without a trace.
With Goldie's disappearance as the catalyst, we are taken deep into the life of the Cohenn family and an American city, from the Great Depression to the years immediately following WWII. The story of the Cohens is seamlessly told from the various perspectives of siblings, Sadie, Jo, Goldie, and Iriving---each of whose worlds is upended over the course of the novel, the smooth veneer of their lives giving way to the vulnerabilities and secrets they've managed to keep hidden--and through the eyes of Lillian, the beautiful woman their father took as a lover as his wife was dying. But while his affair stuns his children, they are even more shocked by his cold anger in the wake of Goldie's disappearance.
