Summary

Summary

Along an elm-canopied boulevard rising from a quaint Finger Lakes village stands a magnificent Queen Anne-style house. In the summer of 1920, when Mame McGrath and her family move in across the street, she notices a catatonic young man rocking on its wraparound porch. Mame, a newly hired elementary school teacher, proclaims boldly that she can, and will, restore this man's psyche-devastated by a drowning in Keuka Lake. What she doesn't anticipate is that he and this house will become the center of her life. The House With the Wraparound Porch weaves a riveting tale of the four generations to whom this home becomes more than a shelter from life's storms. It houses their memories of triumphs and failures, of joys and sorrows that ripple across nine decades. Though many will move on, this house will always be a part of them, because it resides always within the deep heart's core.
