When a young man dies accidentally, his fiance must grapple with his contentious teenaged daughter.
"Caroline Leavitt's sixth novel showcases her ability to create believable characters who can behave badly without forfeiting the reader's sympathy. Living Other Lives dips in and out of its characters' thoughts to reveal confused but basically good people who desperately want to be loved, without having much idea how to go about it. Warmhearted without being saccharine, a delicate balancing act that Ms. Leavitt pulls off with aplomb."
