Long, drawn out book, not one of her better ones.

Engaging saga of the Peck family. No matter what family dynamic you grew up with, you'll recognize something in the Peck family.

Having enjoyed "Digging to China", I was disappointed in this book. The characters are quirky, but didn't pull me in. Bored, I finally gave up on it.
