Professional reviews

"Narrator Kimberly Farr delivers a subtle, often wry portrayal of Willa Drake. We experience Willa's child's eye view of her parents' marriage; her own youthful marriage, motherhood, and early widowhood; and her older years as a conciliator who tries to soothe everyone, especially, Peter, husband #2. When her son's ex-girlfriend, a woman she has never met, is shot, Willa insists they fly to Baltimore to help. Farr delivers Willa's interior monologues with a wonderful combination of angst and humor; Peter, son Sean, and each of the Baltimore neighbors have distinct personalities, and Farr is a credible, precocious 9-year-old. Beautifully written and performed, Anne Tyler's novel reminds us that families come in all shapes and sizes and that not all those we call family are bound to us by biology. S.J.H.
