The End of the Point

Annotation
The Porter family, which has summered for generations at Ashaunt Point, a spit of land pushing into Buzzards Bay, MA, is entirely unsettled when the U.S. Army arrives there in 1942. The next generation tries and fails to find escape at Ashaunt Point as Vietnam looms. From Drue Henz Literature Prize winner Graver; perhaps not the biggest title here, but its loved in house.
