A Spool of Blue Thread (by Anne Tyler) … the importance of each family member

This was a book that, for me, kind of trod along at an event pace. I didn’t get excited and start flipping through the pages as fast as I could to see what would happen next. But it was a comfortable and endearing read.

This book was a view into a normal, though quirky, family. You have the opportunity to get to know each character really well and will find yourself chuckling at times, groaning at others, and realizing that these could be your next door neighbors…or even your own family!

I loved that you don’t really discover the background the history of the family until later in the book. But that doesn’t take away from the story or make you feel like you wish you had known this at the beginning. Each individual was an important piece of the family dynamic and made a difference in how the family operated, existed, and dealt with each other.
