At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. The story is told by Cyril's son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.… (més)

The Dutch House did not disappoint. I love the character of The Dutch House as well as the relationship between Maeve and Danny. A complex family saga - recommended! ( )

This was my first book by Ann Patchett, and even though the overall story was a bit outside of what I usually read, I’m very glad I picked it up. It was a true literary masterpiece. I became so invested in every character’s life. Every detail was understood.

The story takes place in Elkins Park, PA, which really exists, but the house doesn't. However, if you go online and google "The Dutch House," many pictures of beautiful homes in Elkins Park will come up, and any one of them could have been "the Dutch house." And just maybe one of them was? ( )

This is a quiet, moving, utterly absorbing story of a brother and a sister. When they were young, they lived in a ridiculous house, a beautiful house, a fairy tale house--the Dutch House. And their mother abandoned them. There is an evil stepmother, as well, and when Danny is older, he and his sister are exiled from the Dutch House. Danny, the brother, narrates the story and was too young to really remember his mother. He never really understands why she left, but he has his older sister instead. It is still that most unforgivable crime for women to commit: abandoning their children. Never mind that men do it all the time, as Danny and Maeve's father did, in a sense--yet Danny grows up angry at his mother and wanting to be his father. It takes him a whole lifetime to figure this stuff out--and I'm not sure he ever really does, completely--but in the meantime, he tells the story of his sister, and ultimately of his mother and his daughter and the other women who noiselessly and without fanfare, almost without him noticing, shaped his life. The end, for me, was perfect and moving. Life is a wheel. ( )

There are a few times in life when you leap up and the past that you'd been standing on falls away behind you, and the future you mean to land on is not yet in place, and for a moment you're suspended, knowing nothing and no one, not even yourself.
