The Story of a Lifetime: A Keepsake of Personal Memoirs by Pamela Pavuk, J. Richard Huxen

A novel of family intrigue from ?ne of the most accomplished writers of fiction of our day?(The Washington Post) All Alison ever wanted was a blissful childhood for her six children, with summers at the beach and birthday parties on the lawn at their family home. Together with Ingrid, the family au pair, she has worked hard to create a real ?ld-fashioned family life.?But beneath its postcard sheen, the picture is clouded by a distant father, Alison? inexplicable emotional outbursts, and long-repressed secrets that no one dares mention. For years, Alison? adult children have protected her illusion of domestic perfection?ut as each child confronts the effects of past choices on their current adult lives, it becomes evident that each must face the truth. Penelope Lively? novels of history, memory, and character have earned her a loyal readership. Like Ian McEwan? Atonement, this novel is a measured, thoughtful look at how events of the past, both small and large, seen and unseen, deeply inform character and the present. Quietly provocative and disturbing, Family Albumis a highly nuanced work that showcases a master of her craft.
