A House Among the Trees

32337896

I’ve never read a Julia Glass book. I know she’s very popular and her characters from Three Junes (a National Book Award winner in 2002) continue in some of her other books. A House Among the Trees does not contain any of those characters. It’s a stand alone.

When the revered children’s author Mort Lear dies accidentally at the Connecticut home he shares with Tomasina Daulair, his trusted assistant, she is stunned to be left the house and all its contents, as well as being named his literary executor. Though not quite his daughter or his wife, Tommy was nearly everything to the increasingly reclusive Lear, whom she knew for over forty years since meeting him as a child in a city playground where Lear was making sketches for Colorquake, a book that would become an instant classic.

I don’t know why I picked this up or for that matter why I kept going. I can’t say it was good or bad, it was just a book. Nothing super shocking. Just a slow rolling book with multiple POVs. Easily skipped.
