Reviewed by Linda:If you enjoy learning about the inner workings of families, then you will savor this latest novel by renowned writer Jonathan Franzen. Here he introduces us to Russ Hildebrandt, pastor at a liberal suburban church, and his wife, Marion, and their children. The year is 1971 and all but the youngest child are on the brink of big changes that will rock the family to its core. At times amusing, at others painful, always gripping.
