Summary, etc.: Margaret Mayfield is nearly an old maid at twenty-seven in post-Civil War Missouri when she marries Captain Andrew Jackson Jefferson Early. He's the most famous man their small town has ever produced: a naval officer and a brilliant astronomer, a genius who, according to the local paper, has changed the universe. Margaret's mother calls the match "a piece of luck".

    An offer of marriage from a small Missouri town's most distinguished citizen, Andrew Early, seems a godsend to 27-year-old Margaret Mayfield, a quiet and unremarkable woman. Marriage may be an escape for such women at the turn of the century, but in Smiley's world, there are no good marriages and few exceptional lives. Unfolding at a stately pace, the novel documents Margaret's disappointments, Early's obsessiveness and unstableness, and relevant historical events from 1883 to 1942. Reading provides Margaret with a distinctive voice that allows listeners to track her progress from naïveté and calm acceptance to frustration and outrage at her inability to take hold of her life. Early's pompous tones suit his eccentricity and encroaching insanity. Margaret's sister-in-law stands out, with her brisk, no-nonsense, self-assured voice reflective of her confidence and ability to make her own way. Reading excels at exemplifying the poignancy of Margaret's quiet life and unsatisfying marriage. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
