A Masterful, Engrossing Novel About The Life Of A Large Family That Is Deeply Bounded By The Stranger In Their Midst -- An Autistic Child The whole world could not have broken the spirit and strength of the Eberhardt family of 1948. Lainey is a wonderful if slightly eccentric mother. David is a good father, sometimes sarcastic, always cool-tempered. Two wonderful children round out the perfect picture. Then the next child arrives -- and life is never the same again. Over the next forty years, the Eberhardt family struggles to survive a flood tide of upheaval and heartbreak, love and betrayal, passion and pain ... hoping they can someday heal their hearts.

User Review  - Jarosik18 - Goodreads

This was a "American Library Association Notable Book" but I did not care for it. It was slow, wordy, and the characters only mildly interesting. I've read other things from Sue Miller that were much better. I could not finish the book finally giving up on page 125. Read full review
