Loved this book! Listened to it on audio. I happen to be a big fan of family drama, especially when it includes secrets and this book delivered. Also, I enjoy a dual timeline. In this novel, the past story really helps you understand the present-day one. The characters are well developed with deep insight into their motivations and choices. The added benefit of the settings of NY and LA and their environs was a treat for me as a native New Yorker with a father that lives in the Los Angeles area. I loved hearing about familiar spots! The family in this novel is Jewish and I loved the references to traditions, Yiddish, holidays, food and more. Such a great debut! Can’t wait for Linda’s second book.
