Before You Know Kindness is a family saga that is timely in its examination of some of the most important issues of our era, and timeless in its exploration of the strange and unexpected places where we find love.
As he did with his earlier masterpiece, Midwives, Chris Bohjalian has written a novel that is rich with unforgettable characters and absolutely riveting in its page-turning intensity.

"Few writers can manipulate a plot with Bohjalian's grace and power." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Bohjalian's elegant, refined writing makes even the most ordinary details of family life fascinating, and his characters leap off the pages as very real, flawed, but completely sympathetic human beings....A triumph." (Booklist)
Why ever would I do that?
Very ODD book ... not quite sure what to make of it. My feeling is that I shouldn't have invested the time (and money) to get through this. Hope MIDWIVES wasn't a one-hit story!
