Gillam, upstate New York- a town of ordinary, big-lawned suburban houses.
The Gleesons have recently moved there and soon welcome the Stanhopes as
their new neighbours. Lonely Lena Gleeson wants a friend but Anne Stanhope
- cold, elegant, unstable - wants to be left alone. It's left to their
children - Lena's youngest, Kate, and Anne's only child, Peter - to find
their way to one another. To form a friendship whose resilience and love
will be almost broken by the fault line dividing both families, and by the
terrible tragedy that will engulf them all. A tragedy whose true origins
only become clear many years later . . .A story of love and redemption,
faith and forgiveness, Ask Again, Yes reveals the way childhood memories
change when viewed from the distance of adulthood - villains lose their
menace, and those who appeared innocent seem less so. A story of how, if
we're lucky, the violence lurking beneath everyday life can be vanquished
by the power of love.
