Really enjoyed this particular novel of Ms. Tyler. Love this eccentric couple, fun to watch them. Also got a kick out of the idyocyncrasies of this clan. I found it a rather sweet ending...not typical of Tyler.

Anne Tyler knows where we all live. One of the best purveyors of everyday life we can all identify with.

One of Ann Tyler's best, these colorful characters will stay in your mind forever.

Another thought-provoking novel by Tyler. This one asks several questions to apply to the reader's own life and left me thinking about Justine's and Duncan's and Caleb's life journies. The variety of the characters, one of Tyler's strong points, made the story a very interesting one.

Book Description: "Magic and true, dazzling and wise...It has an astounding confidence, depth and range...A wonderful, wonderful novel."

THE BOSTON GLOBE: Duncan Peck has a fascination for randomness and is always taking his family on the move. His wife, Justine, is a fortune teller who can't remember the past. Her grandfather, Daniel, longs to find the brother who walked out of his life in 1912, with nothing more than a fiddle in his hand. All three are taking journeys that lead back to the family's deepest roots...to a place where rebellion and acceptance have the haunting power to merge into one...."

I usually love Anne Tyler. But for some reason I just couldn't seem to get into this one. I ended up dropping it.
