Ben Joe Hawkes is a worrier. He has been raised in a family of women and during a phone call with his mother, he learns that one of his sisters has taken her baby and left her husband. Ben Joe's worry for his sister propels him home again; away from law school and stability to the confusion of childhood memories and unforseen love.
I enjoyed this book - Ms Tyler's first. In my opinion, it was a little light on plot but very well-written. I give it an A!
Although I have read Ann Tyler books that were more captivating, this one was just okay, and I stayed with it to the end, when, at times I wanted to stop reading it. The characters seemed a bit shallow, self-serving and almost outrageous at times. I kept waiting for the main character to grow up and live his life, instead of wallowing in the past and just kind of emotionally drifting.
