The story of family, family secrets, and love. Tip Doyle, ambitious Boston politician, wants to share his ambitions with his two adopted son. Unfortunately, they want nothing to do with politics. One snowy evening, their lives change forever when an automobile accident brings their sister into their lives.
Ann Patchett has the marvelous ability to write about family relationships in a way that the end of the book is always a surprise. I have loved her writing since reading Bel Canto, and this book will be added to my list of favorites. Highly recommended.
