"This gentle, gorgeously written book may be one of my favorites ever." - Jenna Bush Hager (A Today show "Read with Jenna" Book Club Selection!)

This "moving portrait of love and friendship set against a backdrop of social change" (The New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice) traces two married couples whose lives become entangled when the husbands become co-pastors at a famed New York City congregation in the 1960s.
