From the Terrace Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of From the Terrace

Emotionally stunted by a cold father, Alfred Eaton fails to do the difficult things necessary to establish loving relationships of his own. Because he fails to make timely decisions and act on his own he winds up a middle aged man with comfortable material resources but no meaningful vocation and an increasingly problematic marriage with a woman he truly loves. O'Hara provides plenty of sex as well as a fine fictionalized account of the USA from 1900-1950.
