About the Book

Bache gives us an American family richly created and lovingly depicted.On a chilly October morning, Mag and Patrick Singer awaken in their suburban Washington D.C. home to learn that the airport in Beirut has been bombed by Lebanese terrorists. Among the sixteen hundred Marines stationed there is Percival, one of their seven sons. Over the course of the next three days, as they wait to hear further news of Percival's fate, Mag and Patrick are joined by their six other sons in what becomes a vigil of patience and love, as well as a time for the Singers to make peace with their common past. The Singers' reunion is beset with turmoil, both comic and frightening.

Excerpts

At four-thirty on Sunday morning Mag came up from sleep with her heart thumping and sweat pouring from her, the way she'd awakened years ago when her son Izzy was out delivering newspapers and she found him two blocks away lying on the street with a broken ankle.
