From Library Journal:

Hale and Diana Caldwell have escaped the chaos of urban existence and taken up residence in the hills outside Austin, aiming for a simple and idyllic life of breeding racehorses, gardening, and cooking. All should be well, but both their marriage and teenage children are floundering. Daughter Bethany has gotten into some trouble with the law and is residing at Cedar Hills Therapeutic Community, while older brother Roger has lost his focus temporarily and come home for an extended stay to offer his parents emotional support. Though well-intentioned, the Caldwells are oddly reticent in their expression of inner feelings, and so the reader feels a certain helplessness while following their struggle to love and understand one another. Kimberly G. Allen, Georgetown Univ. Law Lib., Washington, D.C.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hale and Diana Caldwell lead outwardly enviable lives in the Texas hill country but secretly face shortcomings in marriage and as parents. According to PW , "There are good sketches of minor characters, lifelike dialogue and a gripping conclusion--but the reader's interest is seized too late, and the final drama does not substitute for lack of depth, coherence or a commanding voice."
