A story of the mid life marriage of two main characters, Rosemarie and Chuck O'Malley. I found it a little idealistic and sappy. It's time is the late 1970s. Perhaps if it took place in this decade it would have not seemed outdated. Greeley's thoughts about the Catholic Church are timeless and that made for good reading. ( )

It would have been more interesting to be a part of his life experiences instead of when he carried around a camera and snapped pictures. His wife was a bit too "horny" all the time and the children were introduced by have and had dones versus experiencing some of their life experiences along with them. It is unknown to me if this is fact/fiction. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765342383, Mass Market Paperback)

It's 1978 and the whole country, exhausted from the twin traumas of Vietnam and Watergate, seems to be suffering from a massive hangover. Chucky O'Malley knows how the country feels; approaching fifty, he finds himself in the grip of a debilitating mid-life crisis. He hasn't lost his faith, exactly, but he does feel disillusioned and depressed. As he travels the world, Chucky searches for a way to renew his weary spirit.
Fortunately, he doesn't have to face this challenge alone. With the loving support of his family, and especially his irrepressible and adoring wife, Rosemarie, he just might rediscover his lost hope and optimism in time for a Second Spring. . . .
