Crossing to Safety

Crossing to Safety

by Wallace Stegner

Overview: Called a “magnificently crafted story . . . brimming with wisdom” by Howard Frank Mosher in The Washington Post Book World, Crossing to Safety has, since its publication in 1987, established itself as one of the greatest and most cherished American novels of the twentieth century. Tracing the lives, loves, and aspirations of two couples who move between Vermont and Wisconsin, it is a work of quiet majesty, deep compassion, and powerful insight into the alchemy of friendship and marriage. In an intimate portrait of two marriages, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Stegner captures the pleasure and pain of lifelong friendship.

Cindy Overton (02/08/15): The story of the friendship of two couples as they grow from the possibilities of youth through the changes of life. I enjoyed being part of their lives as they unfolded. I missed them when I finished the book. Wallace Stenger has a command of the written word, that made this a joy to read.
