A Connecticut native, Lamb has received numerous awards and is also the author of She's Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True, both of which were Oprah’s Book Club picks.
His latest work centers on the Ohs, a seemingly well-adjusted family in suburban Connecticut whose lives have been upended by the mother’s decision to leave marriage of 27 years, and have an affair with a female art dealer in New York.
As the family prepares to come back to Connecticut for the wedding of the two women, long-held secrets are finally revealed, allowing the family to come to grips with the past and begin to heal.
A family saga that is hard to put down, this is a multi-layered novel about love and resilience that stays with the reader long after the book is finished.
