I have read all of Ann Patchett's books except What Next. This latest addition to her body of writing does not disappoint. It's a story of love and family, and also about politics, if you believe the information at the back of the book. She has an amazing gift for developing characters and also for telling a story that compels the reader to finish the book, all too soon.

We read this book for our Book Club Discussion Group. Almost everyone enjoyed it, but all of us felt it needed some expansion on parts of the story line and character development. We felt there were too many partially answered ?s. I recommend it, but would like to see the author take it more in-depth.

Not as great as I hoped. It was very drawn out, I felt like it took forever to get to the end of this book!

This is a beautiful story of love, family, and the depth of how "connected" we all are.....no matter how different we are from one another. LOVED it!

This is yet another wonderful book by Ann Patchett. I loved her characters and how clearly they were delineated. It brings up many modern issues, but all of them are told and resolved within a fascinating family.
