The story is told mainly by Cyril’s son Danny, as he recalls the events that led him and his older sister Maeve to be banished from the house where they were raised by their stepmother. Maeve, who was brilliant and acerbic, was the one who told the story. The two wealthy siblings find themselves once again in poverty after having been raised in luxury. They must now rely on each other for support. It is this unbreakable bond between them that both keeps them alive and prevents them from having any kind of future.

“Ann Patchett’s new book, The Dutch House, is a richly moving tale of a family’s struggle to come to terms with its past. It explores questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, and of who we want to be and who we really are.”

The Book Guide® Editor
