When Tess Winterstone returns to her suburban childhood home after almost 30 years to attend a high school reunion, memories flood back, firmly shut doors open, and the betrayal by her father decades earlier comes to rest. Masterfully weaving the complexities of familial love and rosy 1950s suburban life with the dark underside of such a reality, Mary Morris movingly portrays a woman coming to terms with a warm and charming father's duplicity.

Acts of God is the story of an American woman going through changes and reviewing her past. Though I am English and male, I found it an impelling read. I'm not at all surprised that Mary Morris teaches writing. I read this book about women growing up as girls in a culture unknown to me and remained totally engrossed. From first to last page, this is an extremly well written book. I shall re-read it.
