"It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon." This is how Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959, in this 20th novel from Pulitzer Prize winner Anne Tyler, itself a finalist for the Man Booker Prize. Abby and Red Whitshank and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies and carefully guarded secrets. From Red's father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red's grandchildren carrying the family legacy into the 21st century, here are four generations, their lives unfolding in the lovingly worn house that has always been their anchor.
