Little Brown and Company- July 17, 2012

(unsure which will be used here in the US)

(about the book) -  
Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summer heat, sun-bleached boat docks, and midnight gin parties on Martha's Vineyard in a glorious old family estate known as Tiger House. In the days following the end of the Second World War, the world seems to offer itself up, and the two women are on the cusp of their 'real lives': Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own young husband, Hughes, about to return from the war. Soon the gilt begins to crack. Helena's husband is not the man he seemed to be, and Hughes has returned from the war distant, his inner light curtained over. On the brink of the 1960s, back at Tiger House, Nick and Helena--with their children, Daisy and Ed--try to recapture that sense of possibility. But when Daisy and Ed discover the victim of a brutal murder, the intrusion of violence causes everything to unravel. The members of the family spin out of their prescribed orbits, secrets come to light, and nothing about their lives will ever be the same. Brilliantly told from five points of view, with a magical elegance and suspenseful dark longing, Tigers in Red Weather is an unforgettable debut novel from a writer of extraordinary insight and accomplishment.

  9. These days it seems I'm either hopping to find new books I should add or find new family names I'd like to call my own. Patricia Klaussmann? Heck, yes! Though my grandfather's name is Klaus, so maybe not so cool.. XD

  12. When I first starting reading the description I was not expecting a literary suspense novel. What a pleasant surprise! I think that will help this one stand out from the many other books about evolving friendships. Nice find.
