Publisher Comments:

Saint Maybe is the rich and absorbing story of a young man's guilt over his brother's death and his struggle to atone for the wrong he feels he has done.

On a quiet street in Baltimore in 1965, seventeen-year-old Ian Bedloe lives with his family in an ideal, apple-pie household, enjoying the comfort of family traditions and indulging in all the usual dreams of the future. Until one night, whenIan's stinging words to his brother bring tragedy — and from that careless moment on nothing can ever be the same.

Anne Tyler takes us along Ian's painful and poignant quest for forgiveness, from theChurch of the Second Chance to Ian's gratifying, solitary work as a carpenter. Raising the three children that are thrust on him, he finds himself amazed, drowning in family and duty. Then, out of the very heart of thedomestic clutter, a light begins to flash.

From the Hardcover edition.
