Abby Whitshank, Worth Reading, Books Club, Books Worth, Books Lists, Reading 2015, Anne Tyler, House, A Spools Of Blue Thread
A Spool of Blue Thread Feb 2015 Virtually no one in my book club enjoyed this book. The plot was weak (at best). Not one that any of us would recommend.
“It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon. . .” This is how Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate togetherness: an indefinable, enviable kind of specialness. But they are also like all families, in that the stories they tell themselves reveal only part of the picture. Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. From Red’s father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red’s grandchildren carrying the family legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of Whitshanks, their lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn Baltimore house that has always been their anchor. Brimming with all the insight, humor, and generosity of spirit that are the hallmarks of Anne Tyler’s work, A Spool of Blue Thread tells a poignant yet unsentimental story in praise of family in all its emotional complexity. It is a novel to cherish.

Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn sets out on a perilous journey to ascend her rightful throne. Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, Queen Elyssa.
