SPOOL OF BLUE THREAD by Anne Tyler.
The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate an indefinable kind of specialness, but like all families, their stories reveal only part of the picture.

When his town is rocked by a terrible murder and, the police come to Jacob with questions, he and his family feel the spotlight shining directly on them. Did Jacob commit murder?
