House of Echoes by Brendan Duffy

So, I was almost late to work because I had to finish this book! Couldn't put it down! It has an old Mansion in the mountains of New England, a young family from New York who buys the old place to turn into an inn, and they have a curious boy who likes to play in the woods. Oh, yes, there is also a sinister watcher in those woods and the small village has an interest in the family genealogy of this young family. Is that enough of a hook for you? I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

A well written story about a family that is held together not by a thread but by the force of the wives and mothers even though the story seems to be mostly about the men of the family and the house they built. The men of the Whitshank family through the generations think they control their family's life but it is really the women. The color blue also runs through the story and connects the women to the men in both conflict and seduction. An enjoyable read.
