A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

"Every left­over had to be dumped, and the re­frig­er­a­tor shelves had to be emp­tied and wiped down."

I really wanted to enjoy this more. It is a family story where the house plays a particularly large role. The pages ran by quickly, it is an easy read. There is something small and pedestrian about it that may appeal to some.
It left me a little cold.

 3 out of 5 threadbare couches need replacing.
