It''s the summer of 1960 in Atkinson, Vermont. Maria Fermoyle is a strong but vulnerable divorced woman whose loneliness and ambition for her children make her easy prey for dangerous con man Omar Duvall. Marie''s children are Alice, seventeen-involved with a young priest; Norm, sixteen-hotheaded and idealistic; and Benny, twelve-isolated and misunderstood, and so desperate for his mother''s happiness that he hides the deadly truth he knows about Duvall. We also meet Sam Fermoyle, the children''s alcoholic father; Sam''s brother-in-law, who makes anonymous "love" calls from the bathroom of his failing appliance store; and the Klubock family, who-in contrast to the Fermoyles-live an orderly life in the house next door.

Songs in Ordinary Time is a masterful epic of the everyday, illuminating the kaleidoscope of lives that tell the compelling story of this unforgettably family.
