Very well written but unsatisfying. A study of family dynamics, unfortunately the family members are uniformly one dimensional-bitchy, boring or ineffectual. Story arcs go nowhere (why is the missing convenience store even introduced, where did Sarah go on her 2 hour walk)? Essentially almost 500 pages of waiting for something to happen.

Exquisite character study of 8 family members who vacation together one last time at their lakefront summer cottage. A good fit for fans of Richard Russo and Anne Tyler.
