Summary: Bob Lee is very extroverted, aggressive, completely sure of himself. Todd Mason is just the opposite--withdrawn, unassuming, lacks self-confidence. Both come from good familties, both their fathers successful business men. But where Bob has a mother and three sisters, Todd’s mother died when he was seven, and he is brought up mainly by a step-mother, his father, dedicated to his business, spends very little time with him. Yet somehow, the two, living close together, become fast friends. Julie,
Bob’s youngest sister, develops a persisting affection for Todd, hopes to become his wife some day.After marrying college sweethearts, World War II intervenes. Both enter the Navy, each survive ship sinkings, both receive injuries, Todd’s the most serious. Todd’s wife becomes envolved with a fake, itinerent preacher while he is away, with dire consequences. The war also takes the life of a girl he met before the war, her loss effects him deeply.Both enter the family busnesses. While Bob returns much the same man, Todd is hardened, embittered, yet toughened mentally. Their strong friendship remains constant, they establish a land corporation as equal partners. Trouble soon follows, tragedy strikes both their lives. Bob maintains a fast paced life, drinks heavily, his business suffers. His continual need for funds causes increasing troubles between the two men. Todd remarries, but more tragedy and trouble stalk him.
