From the Pulitzer Prize-winner: the much-anticipated final volume, following "Some Luck" and "Early Warning, " of her best-selling American trilogy, which brings the beloved Langdon family into our present times and beyond.
1987: the next generation of Langdons are facing economic, social, cultural, and political challenges unlike anything their ancestors have encountered. Michael and Richie, twin sons of World War II hero Frank, work in the high-stakes worlds of government and finance, in Washington and New York but their fiercest enemies may be closer to home. Charlie, the charmer, recently found, struggles to find his way; Guthrie is deployed to Iraq, leaving the Iowa farm the heart of this enthralling saga in the hands of his younger sister, Felicity, though Felicity as always, has her own ideas. Determined to help preserve the planet, she worries that her family farm's once rich, bountiful land is imperiled, and not only by the extremes of climate change.
Moving seamlessly from the power-brokered 1980s and the scandal-ridden '90s to our own moment and beyond "Golden Age" combines intimate drama, emotional suspense, and a full command of history, bringing to a magnificent conclusion the century-long portrait of one unforgettable family. It is the crowning literary achievement from a master of American storytelling.
