This touching, uplifting novel spans decades of loyalty, anger, regret, and love in the lives of the Chance family. Here there is a father whose dreams of glory on a baseball field are shattered by a mill accident, a mother who clings obsessively to a religion as a ward against the darkest hour of her past, and four brothers who come of age during the seismic upheavals of the sixties and who each choose their own way to deal with what the world has become. By turns uproariously funny and deeply moving, and beautifully written throughout, The Brothers K tells a story both striking in its originality and poignant in its universality.

I have read this book a few times, this time I listened to it. I was preparing for going to the Book-It performance (which was excellent). Listening to it was a different experience than reading it, but I truly enjoy audiobooks they are a dyslexics best friend.

This is a saga taking a family from the 1950's to the Turbulent '70s. Mom, Dad 4 brothers, 2 sisters, and 2 competing religions.
