When the summer begins, there are four generations gathered together, and the great-grandmother of the title—wiity, imperious, beautiful, self-assured—is now a ruin of her former self. She is no longer the mother Madeleine L’Engle once knew. A “bouquet of young girls” has been assembled to take turns tending the old lady, but if she is not able to return home in September when the girls go back to school and the family returns to New York, what are the alternatives to a nursing home? What of the promise given? How is the pain of watching the ravages of senility to be endured?
