New for the book club
I have just started reading this book and would like your thoughts . . . I really enjoyed Bel Canto by Ann Patchett and only recently learned that Run is about two transracial adoptees and their family.
From the author's web site:
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 Doyle cares about
is his ability to keep his children, all his children, safe.
I bought this book immediately when it came out but have not been able to get into it. However, I felt the same way about Bel Canto, and when I FINALLY got into it, I loved it… so who knows. The adoption stuff on first glance seems very odd though.
