Shtum = to keep quiet, dumb....to keep secrets inside; not to tell
What a lovely story! These flawed characters all crept into my heart. It's going to be awhile before I can let go of Jonah.
The author was masterful in taking a stressed family and showing the stories behind the people, what shaped them, what motivated them and, always, the inner selves that are kept shtum.
This story left me laughing, sad, worried for everyone, sad and sometimes frustrated. But slowly, I moved closer to the characters and, in the end, didn't want to leave them.
Wow ! What a powerfully moving book. Wonderfully written. Lots of laughter and lots of tears.
