This story didn't quite live up to its promotional copy. There's a facade of omniscience generated by narrating from each family member's point of view, but the net result is frustratingly limited rather than illuminating or suspenseful because none of the characters does more than react to circumstance. The most interesting characters turn out to be "secondary" entities who drive the action but receive no development. If not for the entertaining references to Houston, a city I love, I would have rated this two stars.

an engrossing saga of a family slowly disintegrating and struggling to come to terms with the changes, all the while exploring how communication gets skewed when people are not honest and keep secrets out of a sense of misplaced loyalty or shame. Sounds bleak and depressing but it's not. It builds the tension really well to an ending that is not what one expects.
