I just discovered Maggie O‘Farrell last year and she is fast becoming a must-read author for me. This story is told from multiple perspectives of an extended family, stringing together their collective history in flashes of significant events. The prose is just beautiful and the characters are so fleshed out and vivid. The book jumps back and forth in time, filling in key bits of of the story as you go, and builds to a satisfying ending. Loved it.
