If You Like Martin Walker Books, You’ll Love…

Maile Meloy Synopsis: Set in California, Liars and Saints by Maile Meloy follows four generations of the Catholic Santerre family from World War II to the present. In a family driven as much by jealousy and propriety as by love, an unspoken tradition of deceit is passed from generation to generation. When tragedy shatters their precarious domestic lives, it takes astonishing courage and compassion to bring them back together.
