    In Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary - “a guy who weighs risk for a living” - takes a risk of his own, and makes the biggest error of his life. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who’s taking care of his children for the summer. Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, but not before turning the tables on Walter and setting in motion a tragedy of epic proportions.

    Having read all of his prior published novels, this is clearly the least of Guterson's works. I had hoped it would improve, but it did not. While the uninspired reading did nothing to help, there was little to work with. The references to mythology and Greek tragedy were trite. Very disappointing.
