The art of mending

Elizabeth Berg.

Secrets have been long-buried in a family where cruelty, love and loss have been dramatically interwoven in complex layers. In this powerful novel, Elizabeth Berg introduces us to Laura Bartone, who returns home for an annual family reunion. There, both she and her brother Steve are confronted by their sister Caroline, with allegations of shocking behavior by their mother. But as the truth is gradually brought to light, each family member must confront his or her own culpability, complicity, and need to love and forgive.
