* One of the Daily Telegraph’s 100 GREATEST NOVELS OF ALL TIME *

Through every family run memories which bind it together – despite everything.

The Tulls of Baltimore are no exception. Abandoned by her salesman husband, Pearl is left to bring up her three children alone – Cody, a flawed devil, Ezra, a flawed saint, and Jenny, errant and passionate.

Now, as Pearl lies dying, stiffly encased in her pride and solitude, the past is unlocked and with it its secrets.

‘She knows all the secrets of the human heart’ Monica Ali

‘A masterly author’ Sebastian Faulks
