Ed King

Ed KingEd King by David Guterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

David Guterson has effectively answered the questions:  How can what I don't know hurt me? and How do I know the facts that I know are really true?

The best way to read and enjoy this book is with little information, so the story unfolds for you as it should.  As a teaser, I can tell you this much without ruining anything:  In 1962, a not-quite-legal au pair from Britain had an affair with the father of her charges while his wife was in a mental institution.  In 1963, she gave birth and left the baby on a door step.

Find out what happens from there.

This is Guterson's best book yet.  Enjoy!
