The Big Day (Norton Paperback Fiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Donald Cuthbertson prided himself on being a model for his students and teachers, but he had lately begun to lose his focus. Degree Day is approaching, along with a birthday party for his wife, Lavinia, who is not going quietly into middle age.
