"...A compulsively readable tour de force." --The Wall Street Journal New York Times Book Review recommends M.T. Edvardsson'sA NearlyNormal Family and lauds it as a "page-turner" that forces the reader to confront "the compromises we make with ourselves to be the people we believe our beloveds expect." (NYTimes Book Review Summer Reading Issue) M.T. Edvardsson'sA Nearly Normal Family is a gripping legal thriller that forces the reader to consider: How far would you go to protect the ones you love? In this twisted narrative of love and murder, a horrific crime makes a seemingly normal family question everything they thought they knew about their life--and one another. Eighteen-year-old Stella Sandell stands accused of the brutal murder of a man almost fifteen years her senior. She is an ordinary teenager from an upstanding local family. What reason could she have to know a shady businessman, let alone to kill him? Stella's father, a pastor, and mother, a criminal defense attorney, find their moral compasses tested as they defend their daughter, while struggling to understand why she is a suspect. Told in an unusual three-part structure,A Nearly Normal Family asks the questions: How well do you know your own children? How far would you go to protect them?… (mere)

It's been a while since I raced through a novel in two days, but this was a compelling story that managed to continue to move the plot forward at a brisk pace while keeping the revelation of the central secret(s) and the nuances of its primary characters far more gradual. The balance really worked for me.

Highly recommended! ( )

Even with a willing suspension of disbelief, this book just didn't work for me. Of the three characters whose points of view were explored, only the daughter came across as a real individual. The father, who gets to share his perspective first, comes across as psychotic, but this has absolutely nothing to do with the story nor do any of the other characters seem to notice.

The tone was more overblown soap opera than mystery/psychological thriller.

Just an offhand observation - there were so many references to sweat and sweating that it was actually annoying. ( )

Mom, dad, daughter. The perfect family. Until daughter is accused of murder. How is this possible when daughter has been raised to be such a good person? Or has she?
A pretty decent letter mystery story with a few twists along the way. The story is told in three points of view - mom, dad, and daughter. The ending was surprising. It was not what I expected at all. I look forward to more from M. T. Edvardsson. ( )

Also one I was not able to finish because I ran out of vacation time - the idea was interesting, and this may be a translation problem, but I did not find the switch between the different voices convincing. Nevertheless, a normal family gets wrapped up into a murder, only to discover that maybe they are not that normal after all. ( )
