This book carries us through four generations of the Hastings family. Young Will Hastings goes off to WWI and sends his wife postcards from every place he is sent. He doesn’t return from war. His son, Billy, grows up with bicycle racing and then goes off to WWII. He survives the war but is a damaged man. He takes his anger out on his own son, Will, who has to overcome a crippling condition, and who is the first one in the family to go to college-he goes to Oxford and ultimately becomes a professor there and marries a girl far above his class, as seen by his family. And then we see his own daughter, Billie, grow up. The range of the book goes from 1914 to 2005. An excellent book.
