Excellent story about a family coping with loss on many levels

This novel is another stellar work by Trollope, who does so well delving into the heart of love and family. This book opens with a family returning home from the hospital incomplete, the head of the household now nothing but a memory. As the story unfolds, we learn more and more about him and his actions in the past and the impact those actions continue to have on his two separate families. As both his abandoned widow and the woman he left her for try to cope with his death, his four children are left struggling to understand what his loss means to them.

Wonderfully drawn characters and exquisite emotional tension make this book impossible to put down. An excellent winter read- 5 strong stars!
