Commonwealth by Ann Patchett

When you are unsure where you belong

Commonwealth follows two dysfunctional families and their intertwined tragedies over the years. The book makes you think – what is home? Is it something intangible – just a feeling or a memory? For all the times you have felt selfish and failed to live up to family’s expectations, this tells you that there are bonds that survive your weaknesses and failures. That familial relationships, no matter how imperfect, hold us together. That no matter how far you run from this “home”, it is always where you will belong and come back to.
