Not my favourite of Sue Miller’s books but not bad. It took a long time to get going but I think the build up worked. I don’t want to give away what the story ends up being about - it begins when Eva’s second husband John is killed and her family: John’s young son Theo, teenage daughters Emily and Daisy and their daughter’s father Mark begin to cope with this change in their lives. It’s set some time in the recent-ish past and I was pleased the author wrote one of those reunion style last chapters set a decade or so into the future so you could see how everyone moved on. They don’t always work but I thought it was an important part of the book here. Probably better than the three stars I have given it really.
