The confusion of grief

What links the various strands of the plot in this novel is the death of the family patriarch, Harold. jean Moore captures the different ways in which grief affects the women around him: his widow, daughter and granddaughter. The confusion of grief is well conveyed here, with Tilda, the widow, confused about how or whether to move on; Laura, the daughter, searching for meaning in her relationships with the others, and Harper, the granddaughter, confused as to her gender. And all of them feeling the sudden loss of love from the man they adored. A subplot regarding a neighbor’s family I found less compelling, but not enough to distract me from the main story. Recommended for book clubs looking for a discussion-worthy book—it has a reader’s guide in the back.
