Experience the saga of the Lambson brothers, five young boys abandoned by their mother and father, and indeed society. Set primarily in the post-depression Midwest, this modern literary novel is a detailed description of the youngsters’ struggle to survive physically, emotionally, and socially. After their father leaves them, the boys live on a dilapidated farm on the outskirts of the agricultural community of Farmington, North Dakota with their alcoholic mother. In her own pursuit of escape, she often leaves the children to their own means for extended periods of time. The brothers’ hardships form a strong, familial bond between them—the only definition of family that they can construct from their aberrant circumstances. The broader narrative, though, becomes a probing of society’s responsibility to the victims of child abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
