    Judd is the youngest of the four Mulvaney children - three boys and a girl - on their parents’ lush farm in upstate New York. In his childhood, Judd is swept along by the sheer energy of the Mulvaneys and their wealth of beloved family stories. But now, 30 years old, Judd looks back through his memories to tell the secrets that eventually ripped apart the fabric of his storybook family.

    Story

    I had already seen the movie and was looking for more information about why Mary Anne was sent away. I figured it got edited out of the movie. WRONG. Instead I found this a tedious account of a superficial family that disintegrated and blamed it all on a horrible rape. the actions of the family were still unfathomable in the book as in the movie. thankfully my iphone has the ability to speed up the book so I listened to the last half at 1.5 and 2 times normal. It was the only way through it. I'm glad Oprah liked this book but I sure didn't.
