From that porch we spool back through the generations, witnessing the events, secrets and unguarded moments that have come to define the family. From Red's father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red's grandchildren carrying the family legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century - four generations of Whitshanks, their lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn Baltimore house that has always been their home.'One of my favourite authors' Liane Moriarty'She spins gold' Elizabeth Buchan 'Anne Tyler has no peer' Anita Shreve'Anne Tyler is one of my favourite writers and this is a delicious book' Rachel Joyce
