Editorial Reviews

"Boyd's tenderly emotional novel examines the fragility and resilience of familial bonds. Swinging between waves of tension and hard-won harmony, Boyd deftly navigates the tricky subject matter of adoption, social mores, and delayed redemption. Annie Delancey is a believable, likable heroine, and fans of Joanna Trollope and Liane Moriarty will adore the twisting, turning Tangled Lives."-Booklist
