`It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon... 

This is the way Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she and Red fell in love that day in July 1959. The whole family on the porch, relaxed, half-listening as their mother tells the same tale they have heard so many times before. 

And yet this gathering is different. Abby and Red are getting older, and decisions must be made about how best to look after them and their beloved family home. Theyve all come, even Denny, who can usually be relied on only to please himself.

From that porch we spool back through three generations of the Whitshanks, witnessing the events, secrets and unguarded moments that have come to define who and what they are. And while all families like to believe they are special, round that kitchen table over all those years we also see played out our own hopes and fears, rivalries and tensions - the essential nature of family life.

A SPOOL OF BLUE THREAD by Anne Tyler (Bond Street), 357 pages, $32 cloth. I don't know whether it's ironic or fitting, given the title, but Tyler leaves some threads untied.
