2009 book 253

Penelope Lively's Family Album
I've actually never read any of Lively's many earlier novels, despite general acclaim and awards, but I may have to check them out, since this was such an enjoyable read. Six adult siblings flash back on their childhood with their eccentric family and its big secret (which is fairly easy to guess, but--spoiler alert!--maybe only b/c I read that recent AS Byatt novel). A-/B+.
