Many of the children were illiterate, unable even to write their own names. He taught them using oral history and geography lessons.

En meget medrivende roman om en mand, der stopper op midt i livet for at tænke tilbage på sin barndom. Han fortæller historien til hans tvillingesøsters psykiater, som han også forelsker sig i hen ad vejen.
Pat Conroys roman minder meget om Johns Irvings univers.
