Read in March, 2010

Liars and Saints chronicles the lives of the Catholic Santare family; intensely religious mom Yvette, distant and jealous dad Teddy, perfect (or so we think) daughter Margot, second daughter Clarissa and son Jamie who are both struggling to find their place in the world. Spanning the decades of the 1950s through the 1990s, the book follows three generations of the family through war, marriage, divorce, and death. At the heart of the book is a family secret. If you like family dramas with compelling characters, you will love Liars and Saints. Meloy follows up this book with A Family Daughter, her second novel about the always colorful Santare family.
