A wonderfully written story of Red and Abby Whitshank's life.   We see their four children as they come together to help Red and Abby with their later years.    Who will take care of them? Where will they live?   What role has each child will play is this new way of life needs to be decided.

We learn the story of Red's father and how this home became the family home and what secrets were held within it's walls.

The Whitshank Family could be any family with their individual lives but always a love for each other that makes a family and how the home that they have lived all of their lives has been what has kept them together.  

I enjoyed the story - Anne Tyler has created a wonderful family story that in parts can relate to most any family in one way or another.
