Bakerton is a community of company houses and church festivals, of union squabbles and firemen's parades.  For its tight-knit citizens -- and the five children of the Novak family -- the 1940s will be a decade of excitement, tragedy, and stunning change. Baker Towers is a family saga and a love story, a hymn to a time and place long gone.
