** spoiler alert ** Beautifully written compelling story that circles around significant events in a single family as told from different characters‘ perspectives, all while driving the plot toward an inevitable collision with a September 11 tragedy. If you set a book in 2001 in New York , you are foreshadowing this without much subtlety but expecting the outcome did not significantly detract from the nuanced storytelling. Woodson knows how to draw a character and her writing feels intimate. A worthwhile read.
