A Spool of Blue Thread

by Anne Tyler

Three generations of Whitshanks have lived in the family home in Baltimore since the 1920s, in which they have loved, squabbled, protected secrets, had children, and, in some cases, led inauthentic lives. Using her gifts for brilliant dialog and for intricately framing the messiness of parental and spousal relationships, Tyler untangles the threads that bind and sometimes choke all of them, especially Red and Abby, the last Whitshank homestead occupants…[Tyler] continues to dazzle with this multigenerational saga, which glides back and forth in time with humor and heart and a pragmatic wisdom that comforts and instructs. (Library Journal).
