A Good HouseBook - 1999
When Bill Chambers comes home from World War Two, missing a few fingers but more or less intact, he is just happy to be back living in Canada. From this moment the story of three generations of his family begins. Each family member must live out their own destiny and accept the tragedies and triumphs that come with it. Bill tries to remain optimistic even when things begin to take a wrong turn. In the end the family is held together by a woman who wasn't one of them when it all began, but who becomes their emotional centre.
