The Hills at Homeby Nancy Clark
Synopses & Reviews
While always well-stocked with clean sheets, Lily Hill is not expecting visitors. At least not in the numbers that descend upon her genteely dilapidated New England ancestral home in the summer of 89. Brother Harvey arrives first, thrice-widowed and eager for company; then perennially self-dramatizing niece Ginger and her teenaged daughter Betsy; then Alden, just laid-off from Wall Street, with his wife Becky, and their rowdy brood of four . . .
As summer fades into fall, it becomes clear that no one intends to leave. But just as Lilys industrious hospitality gives way to a somewhat strained domestic routine, the Hill clan must face new challenges together. Brimming with wit and a compendium of Yankee curiosities, The Hills at Home is an irresistible modern take on an old-fashioned comedy of manners.
Directing an overflowing cast with wry wisdom and a rollicking prose style, Clark delights readers with her exploration of the forces that strain and sustain a family, and the ties that bind.
