A brother and sister live in the shadow of a remarkable house. Danny has always turned to Maeve for support, because their mother had walked away years ago and their emotionally distant father remarried to a woman who was more in love with the house than its inhabitants. The large, unusual house held the secrets of the couple who built it as well as of the children's mother, who couldn't stand it.

Danny tells the story of how his life was shaped by his relationship with his father and sister and the lives that lived like ghosts in the walls. Over the years, the siblings suffer cruelty and some kindness and are brave enough to laugh about it. But also to hold some grudges.

Our lives are often like this. They are complicated and nuanced, and the people in them are not just one way. If we let them they can reveal other selves.

As with her other books, Patchett has injected humor and love and some opening of hearts.
