Peter Caviness, his sister and two brothers suddenly become orphans and face not only the end of summer, but the end of childhood. Now everything is different—alien, dreamlike, frightening. What are those strange men doing to the beloved house their father built? The locks are changed. Why is the preacher so fascinated with Mary? She's only a child. And when is Uncle Herbert going to stop sleeping in their parents' bedroom? The surprising answers to these questions, and more, are revealed in this novel set in a small city in western Colorado against the historic events of the day—a poignant story that propels the reader through a psychological journey of childhood as deftly textured as growing up itself, gripping, funny, sad, and, at times, melancholy.
Richard Bradford, author of Red Sky at Morning has this to say: “In Sundays in August, a delightful, funny-sad novel about one summer in a small Colorado town, the Caviness kids, suddenly orphaned, have to face the world. How they do it, with the help of their off-beat friends, will keep you not only alert but enchanted.”
