Very different from what I had anticipated. I had expected some kind of suspense novel, but that was clearly not the case at all. Instead what I found was a very philosophical novel about how secrets and deceit - even from the best intentions - can build walls up between members in a family; walls that are impossible to tear down as long as the secret remains.It's a very sad novel. Thankfully not depressing, but melancholic and with an air of resignation. I was sad to see how the Henry family slowly fell apart, but couldn't honestly see how it could be any different with everybody keeping everybody else at an arm's length.I wish David had revealed his secret earlier. I think it would have made a huge difference in their lives.
