No, the other June

Three Junes
Julia Glass

A friend told me to read Three Junes a few years ago, so I can finally cross that one off my list.

In my mind, it was always about three women named June. But it's about three Junes in three different years, so a plot involving three women named June remains up for grabs.

Julia Glass gives us a family from different perspectives -- a husband, one each from two sons and a an outsider. The life of family is hardly just one thing or one way, and you're pivotal experiences may be lived completely differntly by the others involved.
