Summary
Years after accompanying her father to a meeting with Dexter Styles, nineteen-year-old Anna, who now works at the Brooklyn Naval Yard, encounters Dexter and begins to understand her father's complex life and why he disappeared. --
Summary
Anna and her father Eddie arrive at the home of Dexter Styles on Manhattan Beach searching for a job during the Depression. After Eddie goes missing five years later, Anna supports her mother and sister by working at the Brooklyn Naval Yard. One night, Anna approaches Styles for information about her father. They become involved, but he is still marked by his past relationship with Eddie. Egan's description of New York in the 30s and 40s is so immersive that you feel like you're waking up when you have to put the book down. -- Barbara Birenbaum for LibraryReads
