New York Times bestselling author Sue Miller's deeply intimate sage of a mid-twentieth-century American family fractured and bonded by the challenges of love.

It's 1954. The Eberhardts appear to be a perfect middle-class Chicago couple. Lainey is an ebullient if slightly eccentric mother. David is a solid father, analytical and cool-tempered suited to his career as a psychiatrist. Theirs is a good marriage completed by two wonderful children. Then Randall arrives, diagnosed autistic, beautiful and enchanted, as if born "under a spell." Over the years, as the Eberhardt family expands even more, so does Lainey's maternal devotion - and David's gradual need to disengage. At the heart of the upheaval and the profoundly shifting dynamics between a husband and a wife, and brothers and sisters, is Randall, the unmindful soul in their midst.

Spanning decades, Family Pictures is an ambitious, piercingly honest portrait of the fearless courage it takes to be a parent, and the forgiveness, understanding, and healing it takes to be a family.
