A woman is getting remarried to another woman sets the present time for the story of a family told from the viewpoints of the different family members. The mom, who grew up an orphan after a flood killed her mother and sister and turned her father into a drunk; her ex-husband who is a psychologist but recently retired early; their three children etc etc. Lots of different stories. I have enjoyed all of Wally Lamb’s books, I thought this novel was OK, but found it a bit forced at times.
PJH Rating: ***1/2
