Family Album

Family Album

by Penelope Lively

Arlene Almas: Penelope Lively tells the fascinating story of a very unusual family of husband, wife, au pair, and six children. Each character has his or her own distinct personality, and the interactions among them are sometimes funny and other times heartbreaking. There is a secret in this family which is eventually revealed, but the stories of the children growing to adulthood would be sufficient to keep the reader engrossed. The author's writing style keeps the narrative moving along smoothly; the dialogue is lively (pardon the pun), and descriptions are spot on, as the British would say. I greatly enjoyed this book.
