More Than You Know

Nan Rossiter. Kensington, $15.00 (322p) ISBN 978-0-7582-8389-4
In Rossiter's latest novel (after Words Get in the Way), 44-year-old Beryl Graham has been looking after her mother Mia, who is slowly deteriorating from Alzheimer's disease. After Mia's death, Ber-yl's sisters Isak and Rumer return home to New Hampshire to help with the funeral arrangements and the sale of Mia's home. Each sister must deal with her own issues as they prepare for the burial: Isak no longer feels the spark in her marriage and believes her husband may be cheating; Rumer has sepa-rated from her husband; and Beryl is attracted to Micah Coleman, but fears he has not yet gotten over his deceased wife. Rossiter pays particular attention to detailing quotidian activities, such as the sisters eating their meals or sorting through Mia's belongings. The story starts to generate momentum when papers are found chronicling Mia's secret relationship with a well-known artist, forcing the sisters to realize their mother was not the person they thought her to be. Rossiter's patient, deliberate pacing makes this one a perfect bedtime read. (May)
