Why do I have it? I like contemporary fiction and Anne Tyler as an author. I also have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
Ben Joe Hawkes is a worrier. He has been raised in a family of women and during a phone call with his mother, he learns that one of his sisters has taken her baby and left her husband. Ben Joe’s worry for his sister propels him home again; away from law school and stability to the confusion of childhood memories and unforseen love.
I enjoyed this book – Ms Tyler’s first. In my opinion, it was a little light on plot but very well-written. I give it an A!
