The Dutch House is my first read by Ann Patchett. I have multiple books by her on my bookshelf but I haven’t read them yet. I heard this book was good, and when it popped up as available on Libby I snatched it up.
I stated it one morning before work, and it was a slow start. I wasn’t quite sure what I was reading, but I enjoyed the writing. Set in an elaborate mansion at the start, the book follows a family and all its lovely dysfunction.
The book picked up with some family drama and I couldn’t wait to read what happened next. It was a fairly-slow-moving-but still-interesting read.
