I read an uncorrected proof of this book.I remember when I first read John Irving. I was young, just dipping my toe in adult fiction, after a vivid foray into Stephen King and, okay, I admit, V.C. Andrews, Irving was something different. His writing was modern, it was literary and it spoke of deep understanding of our human foibles painted with such a worldly brush that even if I never met people that lived such lives as his characters, I shared a deep empathy with their plot. The book was The World According to Garp. It was a book that changed my relationship with reading.Cherise Wolas is most definitely a writer of the same caliber. It feels a privilege to read such an author at the beginning of her career. Her first book, The Resurrection of Joan Ashby tells the story of a woman who wrestles between her commitment to her art and her commitment to her family. Like Garp it weaves a writer's work within the narrative of the book. What kept Ashby compelling for me was the character's inner dialog and my hope that she would speak of what she desperately felt. The character's crisis and the resolution were both so unexpected and rewarding. I was left with a spent feeling, like no other book was going to satisfy in the same way.How wrong I was. Cherise Wolas has a second book, The Family Tabor.Harry Tabor is the Man of the Decade for his good work helping to settle refugees in his desert town in Southern California. His wife is a successful child psychologist. Their children are all outwardly successful. They return home to celebrate his achievement and each member of the family is weighed down by something they need to resolve for themselves. We know our family. There are the stories we share from childhood of sibling mayhem and teenage intrigue. There are expectations our family has for us we feel compelled to meet because those expectations must be born from wisdom. There is the the fear of disappointing them. And the sudden moment in our own adulthood when we have to acknowledge not only our parent's imperfections but moral shortcomings.Wolas has revisited some themes from Ashby: motherhood and its sacrifices, choice and consequence, the struggle between our public facade and our internal dialog and desires, and spiritual longing. As a reader of Wolas' work I find these stories stay with me even when the book sits on the nightstand for a few days amid the bustle of a busy life. Her books spurs us to think of bigger themes. They surprise and satisfy and, again, leave us with another reading hole to fill.Good The Family Tabor Creat Cherise Wolas is a Ebook From the acclaimed author of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby, a new novel set over the course of a single weekend, as five members of a family confront the lies upon which their lives are built.Harry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade, a distinction that feels like the culmination of a life well lived, a perfect life His family comes together in Palm Springs forFrom the acclaimed author of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby, a new novel set over the course of a single weekend, as five members of a family confront the lies upon which their lives are built.Harry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade, a distinction that feels like the culmination of a life well lived, a perfect life His family comes together in Palm Springs for a weekend of celebration his wife, Roma, a distinguished child psychologist his daughters Phoebe, a high powered attorney, and Camille, a brilliant sociologist and his son, Simon, who brings his glamorous wife and two precocious daughters But almost immediately, cracks begin to appear in this smooth fa ade Simon hasn t been sleeping through the night, Camille can t decide what she wants to do with her life, Phoebe is a little too cagey about her new boyfriend, Roma knows her children are hiding things from her And Harry is haunted by the long buried secret that drove him, decades ago, to relocate his young family from Connecticut to the California desert As the ceremony nears and the family splinters, the Tabors must each face up to the imperfections they ve suppressed for so long Deftly alternating between the five Tabors, this provocative, gorgeously rendered novel reckons with the price we pay for second chances..
