reviewed Acts of God on
A well-written novel. From the back of the book: "When Tess Winterstone returns to her suburban childhood home after almost thirty years to attend a high school reunion, memories flood back, firmly shut doors open, and the betrayal by her father decades earlier comes to rest. Masterfully weaving the complexities of familiar love and rosy 1950s suburban life with the dark underside of such a reality, Mary Morris poignantly portrays a woman coming to terms with her past and, ultimately, herself."
