I just loved this story of a family learning the story of their mom and dad during a magical time and place of youth and acting- the magic of Our Town and The Cherry Orchard. Beautifully paced and written by Patchett! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I think Ann Patchett might be my favorite author. Her newest book, Tom Lake, feels like the kind of book you could read as a teen, a middle aged person, or a crone. It‘s a timeless, yet very modern, story of love and family; spanning from New Hampshire to Hollywood to Michigan. Gorgeous storytelling and a captivating structure. Wowza. I just finished it and I feel like starting it again!
