The story recounts the life of a family in Connecticut from the early 1920's to its move to California arriving on V-J Day, August 15, 1945. The story begins prior to WW I recounting how a soldier, an Italian immigrant, returns to Waterbury, Connecticut following the War. He has received his citizenship by serving in the War. He becomes a leader in the barber union movement, veteran affairs, and the politics of Waterbury and to some degree the State. The difficulty of unionizing is described through actual events. The veteran's movement is also described through actual accounts. During the years from 1939 to 1945, the story is told from the perspective of the youngest son. During those years, the accounts relate growing up during a time that was intense with both patriotism and with uncertainty. He describes from his perspective, his early remembrances of a family, secure in its home and in its Italian traditions. Then the story changes to the need for adjustments in a three-story flat in a low-income section of the city. He perceives the events of change and describes them with an understanding that will capture the interest of readers of all ages.

John S. Kloppenborg gives a detailed analysis of one of the most difficult of Jesus' parables, the parable of the Tenants (Mark 12:1-12; Gospel of Thomas 65). He examines the ways in which Christians have typically read and mis-read the parable, and places the parable firmly in the context of the practices of ancient viticulture. The author models a new approach to the interpretation of the parables of Jesus. First, he critically engages the history of interpretation of the text, inquiring into the ideological interests that the parable has engaged during the history of its use in Christian churches and in political discourse. Second, he reconstructs the social world in which the parable was first told, in particular the economic, social, and legal aspects of ancient viticulture. He demonstrates that the parable of the Tenants has mostly been interpreted from the standpoint of those who wield social and political power, a strange irony considering the social status of the Jesus of history and the literary uses of the parable. All of the features common to the parable as it is told by Mark and the Gospel of Thomas make it a perfectly realistic story. It is only Mark's editing of the story that takes it beyond the realistic idiom characteristic of Jesus' other parables. The book concludes with a dossier of 58 papyrus documents relating to various aspects of viticulture and agrarian conflict. It was awarded the 2007 Francis W. Beare Book Award by the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies.
