Reviews

Brundage's second novel concerns ugly secrets that lie beneath the glossy veneer of a wealthy town and popular school in the Berkshires, waiting to be exposed by three new arrivals: a sculptor, her son and a writing teacher who gave up his daughter for adoption many years ago. Thrillers often make great audiobooks, because they offer frequent heart-stopping twists and turns. But this literary thriller, with its careful, delicate writing and a slow buildup to a powerful, sudden--and fairly predictable--denouement, is less suited to audio. Despite Bernadette Dunne's considerable efforts, the reading drags from time to time. Mark Bramhall only voices the prologue; the remainder of the book belongs to Dunne, who ably evokes both genders and is particularly skilled with New England accents. Despite the slowness of the story and patience required of the reader, this is a satisfying audio experience. A Viking hardcover (Reviews, May 26). (Aug.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

The Doctor's Wife having sold hugely in paperback, Brundage is ready to give us a showdown between little Willa's two fathers, biological and adoptive. With a four-city tour; reading group guide. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Brundage is a brilliant novelist." -Richard Bausch "Brundage has a penchant for turning topical subjects into gripping novels...Sex, drugs, violence and murder are all in the Brundage mix." -"The Washington Post" "[A] well-turned thriller. . . Brundage writes with startling clarity." -"St. Louis Post-Dispatch" "A taut tale of suspense rounded out with sharp observations on parenting, adoption and the fraught business of keeping up appearances." -"New York Observer"
