Baker Towers by Jennifer Haigh

Baker Towers: A Novel - Jennifer Haigh

Not much of a story to keep the book together. The book followed various family members over time, but it didn't spend enough time on any one character to really go anywhere. It just kind of slogged on without anything especially interesting happening, and a lot was left unexplained or just never addressed.
