CANCELED - Parkland Library Book Club: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

Saturday, April 4, 2020

This richly moving story explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. At the end of World War II, Cyril Conroy combines luck and investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. Set over the course of five decades, this dark fairy tale centers on two smart people who cannot overcome their past until at last they are forced to confront the people who left them behind.
