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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endearing Ann Patchett's most emotional and spiritually satisfying work. A true masterpiece of insight into the human experience of family relationships and love. It should be on all " must read " lists.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent book This is a decent read, though a bit of a disappointment coming from the same author who write the superb Bel Canto. The book didn't really grab my attention until the character of Kenya came into the story. The storyline itself seemed a bit too far-fetched to really get into. Still, Patchett writes well, so it was a nice, quick read.
