“Profoundly honest, shapely, ambitious, engrossing.”—New York Times Book Review
From New York Times bestselling author Sue Miller comes a masterful, engrossing novel about the life of a large family that is deeply bonded by the stranger in their midst—an autistic child.
The whole world could not have broken the spirit and strength of the Eberhardt family of 1948. Lainey is a wonderful if slightly eccentric mother. David is a good father, sometimes sarcastic, always cool-tempered. Two wonderful children round out the perfect picture. Then the third child arrives—and life is never the same again. Over the next forty years, the Eberhardt family struggles to live with a flood tide of upheaval and heartbreak, love and betrayal, passion and pain...hoping they can someday heal their hearts.
Family Pictures is an unforgettable, insightful, and resounding novel of strength and resiliency against overwhelming circumstances.
