“This tender, piercingly beautiful story of motherless children weaves together big themes such as the notion of what constitutes family, race, politics, and the responsibility to self vs. community. Patchett is wonderful at sketching perfect vignettes of quiet humanity and grace in the simple act of connection. Book groups will find much to discuss here; this is a completely satisfying read.”
— Michele Lonergan, Tree House Books, Holland, MI

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.
