Run (P.S.)by Ann Patchett
Run, a worthy successor to Bel Canto, shows off Patchett's trademark gorgeous prose and emotional depth. Her characters are believably flawed, but ultimately good and decent human beings who you want to spend time with.
Synopses & Reviews
Since their mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving, possessive, and ambitious father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard cares about is his ability to keep his children — all his children — safe.
"Ann Patchett can be counted on to deliver novels rich in imaginative bravado and psychological nuance." Publishers Weekly
Set over a period of 24 hours, Run shows how worlds of privilege and poverty can coexist only blocks apart from each other, and how family can include the most unlikely of people, in this novel about secrets, duty, responsibility, and the lengths people will go to protect their children.
