Publisher Description

When Mercy Garrett moves herself out of the family home, everyone determines not to notice.

All she wants is space and silence. No clutter. Not even their cat, Desmond.

But it turns out family life is impossible to escape - particularly when it's in your past. For Mercy it all begins in 1959, with a holiday to a cabin by a lake. It's the only one the Garretts will ever take, but its effects will ripple through the generations.

The glorious Sunday Times bestseller follows one family's joys and heartbreaks, mistakes and secrets, from the 1950s right up to today

Just lovely, warm and cosy…

A perfect read about families, the kindness, the inbuilt love, the dysfunctionality and just the strength of genes… all about belonging even when we don’t want to. Loved it! Anne Tyler at her best!
