Summary:

Longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction

When Marilyn Connolly and David Sorenson fall in love in the 1970s, they are blithely ignorant of all that awaits them. By 2016, their four radically different daughters are in a state of unrest. Wendy, widowed young, soothes herself with booze and younger men; Violet, a litigator turned stay-at-home-mom, battles anxiety and self-doubt; Liza, a neurotic and newly tenured professor, finds herself pregnant with a baby she's not sure she wants by a man she's not sure she loves; and Grace, the dawdling youngest daughter, begins living a lie that no one in her family even suspects. With the arrival of Jonah Bendt--a child placed for adoption by one of the daughters fifteen years before--the Sorensons will be forced to reckon with the rich and varied tapestry of their past: years marred by adolescent angst, infidelity, and resentment, but also the transcendent moments of joy that make everything else worthwhile.

    The Most Touching Family Novel I Ever Read.

  • Cyn K.

    The narrator does a fine enough job. I didn't care for the story. It's a very quiet book. Sometimes I can abide a quiet book if the language sings and there's a poetry to the story. Not the case here. By chapter 11 I realized nothing had happened. Yes, the child given up for adoption had come onto the scene, but I found the story of this family in their everyday lives to be abysmally boring.

  • Katriona H.

    Loved it. Completely different than how I was raised but I loved the love they demonstrated. A great read.

  • Janet S.

    One of the best books I’ve listened to this year. The way the author dives into each character, how they feel, what they recognize in themselves and others...it’s THE book for moms, daughters, sisters...family. I’m so sad it’s over
