Brother and Sister by Joanna Trollope

The first book I picked up by Joanna Trollope was Marrying the Mistress, which I thought by the title would be a frothy romance. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a richly layered story of a family torn apart by change and trying to put itself back together again. Brother and Sister is the latest book I've read by Trollope, and I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed her others. Her writing is quiet and beautiful, and she sketches her characters so well that I end up rooting for them all to overcome their difficulties (which they do, at the end of the book).
