I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters in Joanna Trollope's new novel, "The Other Family." The circumstance that causes strain between the two families of deceased musician Richie Rossiter - a wife and now-adult son from a first marriage, and a wife and three adolescent daughters (if not strictly so in age, then in attitude) in a second marriage - is completely plausible in today's world, and the initial reactions of the individual characters are understandable. Several of the characters are able to face up to less than ideal life circumstances and wrestle with the emotional curveballs thrown at them, eventually (Trollope leads us to hope!) growing beyond a reactionary position to one of acceptance and possibly even embrace, and leading (dragging?) those they love in a similar direction. But it's never easy, and Trollope allows the characters to challenge, slide, push and pull one another through emotional muck on the path to resolution in an unexpected future. Trollope is one of the best authors around for showing realistic characters dealing with difficult issues of modern life.

This book is so complex and beautifully written. It doesn't happen with many books, but the pages fall away and it seems as if you're watching life play out in front of your eyes. I love Ms. Trollope's prose; it's so clear, precise, and beautiful. I read all of her books often, even though I have a library of more than 5,000 books right in my house.
