Lovely, lovely new book by one of my favorite authors. When the estranged grandfather dies, he leaves an endowment: pay for his butler, and the purple Bentley, to go to the daughter-in-law and four remaining children, while she is short-handed due to her husband's deployment. Significant family trauma, but the butler says the right things. There is also the wildly improbable aspect of cricket (the game) taking over at the middle school. Charming.
