"A powerful and haunting memoir."--Anne Martino, Ann Arbor News "Like Family is a personal triumph... McLain's story is one of nobility and of the strength of a young woman's spirit."--Wisconsin State Journal "What makes Like Family so remarkable are not the peculiar circumstances of Paula McLain's childhood but the depth of understanding that she brings to those circumstances, and the beautiful prose in which she renders that understanding. Seldom have I seen so vividly evoked the need to belong to some, any, kind of family and the painful negotiations that time brings to even our closest intimacies."--Margot Livesey, author of Mercury and The Flight of Gemma Hardy "Ms. McLain's close observation of the sisters' perils jumps with life and wry merriment. They take their pleasures and their sorrows as they arrive; even their times of desolation are narrated in language that conveys a kind of ragged glory - the tattered flag of their kinship still waves!"--Paula Fox, author of Borrowed Finery "Astonishing....With her poetic gift for language, McLain demonstrates the true meaning of family."--Chicago Tribune
