The Guest Book

The Guest BookThe Guest Book by Sarah Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Twilight of the WASPs, indeed. The intertwined timelines sometimes worked against themselves, as there were moments we readers needed to wallow in but were jumped forward or back. And for all the deep, dark family secrets that get exposed over the course of the book, that there is one death that completely escapes the younger generation's notice (seriously? Moss never remembered or mentioned his older brother to anyone?). I knew many families like the Miltons and their social milieu and the ways they interacted are well depicted here. That Blake gets when to use Farmington also shows she knows these people and their world. Nothing surprising, just a good read.
