Staff Reviews


This is my favorite book by one of my favorite authors… It’s a tightly crafted story of love and ambition and family takes place during only 24 hours – and I gave a little gasp at the end! 

Patchett’s writing is beautiful – each word if perfectly chosen.

— Jody

Description


Since their mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving, possessive, and ambitious father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard cares about is his ability to keep his children—all his children—safe.
