Summary
"A story told with equal measures of tension and redemption. Married for 54 years, mechanical engineer Mike and homemaker Mina seemed the picture of stability. "Only You" was their song. Mike was emotionally distant from his children and Mina lacked warmth, but the children seemed to enjoy their childhoods in Port Washington, N.Y. In 2002 Mina died of pneumonia. A few months later, Doug's father announced plans to sell the house and marry Carol, his secretary who was in her '60s. While cleaning out 51 Birch St., Block discovers boxes of his mother's diaries. The secrets, feelings and desires buried within these volumes, confirm his father's comment that the marriage "wasn't a loving association, just a functioning one." (From Canada, in English) "--website
