Ask Him Why Catherine Ryan Hyde

This book blew me away.  It is the story of a family who face destruction  when their son Joseph  is court martialed as part of a very public  military event.  The story is told mostly by  Ruth the youngest daughter and Aubrey the younger brother.  As time unfolds different details come to light and each member of the family deals with  things in their own way.  Ruth searches for answers,  Aubrey feeds his an anger and their parents try to keep some semblance of order and find them a way to start ov er.  Years later Joseph gets a fresh start of his own but can he start over with his family and will they understand why he made the choice that changed  their lives?  A moving and touching family novel that will pull you in and leave you sorry to read the last page.
