Reviews

The sudden death of Philip Stavely drastically changes the lives of his surviving family members. His widow, Ellie, finds it difficult to accept her husband's shooting as an accident and suspects that he may have committed suicide. It was a common interest in the acting profession that brought them together, but marriage and children pushed them apart. Philip pursued his career while Ellie took on the role of wife and mother. After his death, she explores the reasons for this estrangement. The tragic event affects each family member differently: Harriet, the youngest, denies her father's death; Luke, approaching manhood, finds inadequacy in his relationship with his father; and Cassandra, the oldest and her father's favorite, has her own troubling memories. The novel moves between the past, with recollections of life with father, and the present as each tries to cope without him. Carole Boyd reads in a precise, even-paced style in keeping with the often reflective moods of the characters. Recommended for general fiction collections.Ă„Catherine Swenson, Norwich Univ.
