THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
´A literary love child of Jonathan Franzen and Anne Tyler ... outstanding and highly enjoyable´ Observer

´The perfect, engrossing holiday read´ RED
MEET THE SORENSON FAMILY
MARILYN has somehow fallen into motherhood and spent four decades married to
DAVID, who´s pretty certain he loves her more than anyone has ever loved another person.
WENDY, their eldest, a cause for concern, soothes herself with drink after being widowed young,
while VIOLET, lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mother, is disturbed by the reappearance of a son placed for adoption fifteen years earlier.
LIZA, a professor, is pregnant with a baby she´s not sure she wants by a man she´s not sure she loves
and GRACE, their dawdling youngest daughter, lives a lie that no one in her family suspects.
´A gripping and poignant ode to a messy, loving family in all its glory´ Madeline Miller
´A moving, immersive, often very funny study of family and sisterhood´ Sunday Times
´Like Meg Wolitzer. A forensic dissection of family past and present, I loved it. If you like reading about relationships, this one is for you.´ Pandora Sykes
