If you have a wonderful cozy place to read, sink in the comfort of that space and the comfortable and commanding writing in Anne Tyler’s newest novel. A Spool of Blue Thread. Tyler is a novelist in full command of the brilliant details which make scenes vivid and real. This is her twenty-seventh novel. This is a story about three generations of the Whitshank family living in a special house that the patriarch fell in love with when he was hired to build it for another family. Was it a trick that the owners soon moved out allowing Junior Whitshank to gain possession of his dream house? Junior’s son, Red inherited the house and his father’s construction business. He and his wife Abby have four grown children. The eldest boy, Denny is distant from the family while his adopted brother has a place in the family business. The Whitshanks are not a special family, but they view themselves as one because of their talent in keeping pets alive for much longer than expected. The reader will really get to know this family and feel a part of it. It is a wonderful book and such enjoyable reading!
