" In this] haunting new novel, the act of forgetting is as strange and interesting as the power of remembering."
-"The New York Times Book Review"
Penelope Lively is renowned for her signature combination of silken storytelling and nuanced human insights. In "Family Album," lively masterfully peels back one family's perfect facade to reveal the unsettling truths.
All Alison ever wanted was to provide her six children with a blissful childhood. Its creation, however, became an obsession that involved Ingrid, the family au pair. As adults, Paul, Gina, Sandra, Katie, Roger, and Clare return to their family home and as mysteries begin to unravel, each must confront how the consequences of long-held secrets have shaped their lives.
