I thought the writing was masterful but the story and characters started to plod for me about two-thirds along and it was due at the library so I skimmed. It is reminiscent of [a:Jane Gardam|20838|Jane Gardam|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1264017642p2/20838.jpg] (who does a better story), [a:Anne Enright|52832|Anne Enright|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1426012522p2/52832.jpg] and [a:Barbara Trapido|167308|Barbara Trapido|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1289581519p2/167308.jpg], all of whom write good family stories of fraught adult relationships. [a:Anne Tyler|457|Anne Tyler|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1332881249p2/457.jpg]is superb at this kind of family tale and funnier.

The old house achieved status as a character itself. The young kids were well drawn, maddening, willful and true. The middle segment of the mother's life was the most interesting, but I put the book away without a truly satisfied sigh.… (mais)
