Jean Thompson recommends
The Second Home (2020)
Christina Clancy
"The Second Home shows us how families are knit together and how they unravel; how a place?a geography, a house?can act as the repository for our best and most important memories. And that even the most damaged past can be reclaimed, a hard-won wisdom that shines through on every page."
