Fairly lightweight story about lies and secrets. Lucy, a mother of two by her married lover moves back to DC where she grew up. She’s hiding from a scandal but not hiding very well. Supposedly she wants to keep secret a tragedy from her childhood yet she’s living in the house in which it happened and it was widely reported in the press at the time. She’s also made the mistake of not telling her 11-year-old daughter the facts and Maggie is old enough now to be finding out on her own; a recipe for disaster. Indeed Maggie is so angry at her mother she runs away. Each of the members of the close-knit neighborhood has secrets including the unbalanced woman across the street to whom Maggie has formed an attachment. Secrets about which, people would be more open nowadays. The book takes place in 1973, and since they are in DC, Watergate hearings are going on which is kind of interesting. I would not have known about this book nor picked it up had it not been hyped in people magazine. Had I not, I would not have missed much.
