Commitment, in all of its meanings, is the perfect title for this work. Through love and commitment, a family survives and reforms. Simpsons embodies the axiom, show don't tell, in this novel. The character development and sense of place are beautifully drawn as is the time span in which the novel takes place. I loved this book and came to love and respect all the characters.

Thank you to #NetGalley.

I've been waiting since 2014 for a new book by Mona Simpson. It was worth the wait. I really enjoyed this book though was sad, and depressing book at times. As Walter, Lina and Donnie's mother Diane goes into a depression and is hospitalized in a mental institution, Walter is in college at the time and Lina and Donnie are in high school. Thank goodness for Julie, Diane's best friend who takes care of Lina and Donnie since Walter was in college.

Sometimes it mentioned the future (this was in the 1970s, so the 80s were mentioned) of the kids lives but not specifically but sort of got an idea where it was going but not a spoiler though.… (mere)
