Commonwealth
by Ann Patchett
Ann Patchett’s novels are known for their romance and humanity, and her most recent, COMMONWEALTH, is no different. Spanning five decades, it traces the effects of a chance encounter on four parents and six children. One of those children is Franny Keating, who begins an affair with a legendary author, not realizing that he will take her story and make it his own. What follows is a story of loss, guilt, loyalty, and responsibility that is not to be missed.
Commonwealth
Ann Patchett

Read with a Lime Spritzer

Citrus seems appropriate for a Southern California setting. At times funny and heart-wrenching, Patchett’s COMMONWEALTH covers a multigenerational saga that begins with a forbidden kiss. From there a road diverges for two families in very different ways. While Bert Cousins arrives at the fateful christening party with a bottle of gin, might we suggest a lime spritzer?
