From New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Ann Packer, a “tour de force family drama” (Elle) that explores the secrets and desires, the remnant wounds and saving graces of one California family, over the course of five decades. Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of his future family, Bill buys the property and proposes to Penny Greenway, a woman whose yearning attitude toward life appeals to him. In less than a decade they have four children. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, overwhelmed and undersatisfied, chafing at the conventions confining her. Years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence sets off a struggle over the family’s future. One by one, they tell their stories, which reveal Packer’s “great compassion for her characters, with their ancient injuries, their blundering desires. The way she tangles their perspectives perfectly, painfully captures the tumult of selves within a family” (MORE Magazine). Reviewers have praised Ann Packer’s “brilliant ear for character” (The New York Times Book Review) and her “naturalist’s vigilance for detail, so that her characters seem observed rather than invented” (The New Yorker). Her talents are on dazzling display in The Children’s Crusade, “an absorbing novel that celebrates family even as it catalogs its damages” (People, Book of the Week). This is a “superb storyteller” (San Francisco Chronicle), Ann Packer’s most deeply affecting book yet, “tragic and utterly engrossing” (O, The Oprah Magazine).

I ask myself why I wrote this novel. In part it was the pleasure of creating a story and imagining characters coming alive. And the characters do take on a life of their own, both in my head and, I hope, on the page. But I was also struck by the stunning revelations about the abuse of children by religious professionals. It is arguably the greatest crisis in Catholicism in a very long time. I grew up in this tradition and spent two decades in the Jesuit order. I went on to teach religious studies at Emory University. The play "Doubt," by John Patrick Shanley, further stimulated my interest in approaching the topic via fiction. The interplay of respecting the primacy of the literary, while being engulfed in a storm of contemporary information on children abused by priests, presents its own problems. How does a writer keep from being an essayist under the guise of a novelist? I wanted my characters to be as alive as possible and not just carriers of ideology. Whether I succeeded to some extent is for others to judge. But I kept posing that dilemma to myself as I went along.
