Not much ever really happens in most Tyler novels, including this one, but they still make for absorbing and deeply satisfying reads. Without melodrama, without fussing, Tyler immerses you in a large Baltimore family simply by detailing the placid ebb and flow of their everyday lives. Siblings bicker, a mother’s memory begins to fade, the black-sheep son comes and goes: It’s all gently woven in with the smells of coffee and toast, the macramé plant holder and serapes decorating the living-room walls, the clang of dinner plates and silverware.
