Everything I Never Told You 2014 by Celeste Ng. Very sad book but very well written. A family that misses each other at every turn. Hard to watch the lack of communication in action, but easy to understand the reasons why. Each character gets to tell their story.
Doctor Thorne, part of the Barchester Chronices by Anthony Trollope, not sure when he wrote it but mid 19th C. Very verbose writer, my goodness! But very funny at times and very incisive in disecting his characters. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
