A Book Review Lisa Tucker's THE WINTERS IN BLOOM
Everyone has a secret, but can they keep it?
Oh, no they can't...``````````Maroon 5, Secret
Thus is the crux behind Tucker's latest novel, her sixth.
David and Kyra Winter are happily married. Life and work and parenthood are all they've ever hoped for. In their son, Michael, they have everything they need.
But then Michael disappears from their backyard, and they are forced to recall their pasts, from before they knew each other. Somehow, this tragic circumstance will be traced to that secret of David's. Or maybe that secret of Kyra's.
THE WINTERS IN BLOOM, through comfortable and beautiful writing, asks these questions: How protective can a parent be? How much do our personal histories play into the way we relate? And does the past ever stay in the past? `
So who is responsible for Michael's kidnapping? And on whom does the blame fall?
