Description

"...the sense of loyalty to one's family history is so vivid in the novel that it is practically its own character."-New York Times Book Review The Family Tabor is the next audiobook from Cherise Wolas, acclaimed author of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby Harry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade, a distinction that feels like the culmination of a life well lived. Gathering together in Palm Springs for the celebration are his wife, Roma, a distinguished child psychologist, and their children: Phoebe, a high-powered attorney; Camille, a brilliant social anthropologist; and Simon, a big-firm lawyer, who brings his glamorous wife and two young daughters. But immediately, cracks begin to appear in this smooth facade: Simon hasn't been sleeping through the night, Camille can't decide what to do with her life, and Phoebe is a little too cagey about her new boyfriend. Roma knows her children are hiding things. What she doesn't know, what none of them know, is that Harry is suddenly haunted by the long-buried secret that drove him, decades ago, to relocate his young family to the California desert. As the ceremony nears, the family members are forced to confront the falsehoods upon which their lives are built. Set over the course of a single weekend, and deftly alternating between the five Tabors, this provocative, gorgeously rendered audiobook reckons with the nature of the stories we tell ourselves and our family and the price we pay for second chances. More praise for The Family Tabor: "An utterly hypnotic read...THE FAMILY TABOR is a supple and engrossing read-highly recommended for people who love an intricate family drama."-Chicago Review of Books "Wolas...once again writes with gorgeous intensity about the strata of loving relationships that entwine families in all their messy contradictions that often stubbornly resist transparency, the truth, and resolution. Savor this."- Library Journal, starred review

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jonathan Davies delivers a crisp and unobtrusive narration that lays bare the story of a wealthy, successful family on the brink of implosion. Individual chapters are devoted to each member of the Tabor family, and Davies's expressive voice transforms seamlessly into all: Patriarch Harry is voiced as expansive and confident, while daughter Phoebe--who has many secrets--is presented in a guarded and tentative voice. The Tabors are all fiercely loyal to the concept of "the family," but all must face the complications that arise when one member wanders off the path of ancestral expectation. Davies conveys just how fragile family bonds can be, even in the most outwardly fortunate of families. D.G.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
