Garriepy does a wonderful job of transporting her readers back to 1953, when family expectations weighed heavily on family dinners and the promises between young men and women were made with heartfelt conversations and small touches. Her characters are captivating, and the story she builds around two brothers and the woman who may come between them is developed with perfect pacing.
