Summary
Margaret is feeling very put-upon because the care of her dying, widower father has fallen to her. She has three little children--all as lively as can be. She wonders why her younger brother and sister can't pull their lives together enough to help her. When Margaret takes her father into her home, she discovers a secret about her family that will change her and her siblings forever.
Critique
Critics have called this second book by Minot `luminous` and that is exactly the right description for it. The passages describing their father's decline are inspirational and very touching. Highly recommend.
