Harry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade, a distinction that feels like the culmination of a life well lived. Gathering together in Palm Springs for the celebration are his wife, Roma, a distinguished child psychologist, and their children: Phoebe, a high-powered attorney; Camille, a brilliant social anthropologist; and Simon, a big-firm lawyer, who brings his glamorous wife and two young daughters. But immediately, cracks begin to appear in this smooth facade: Simon hasnt been sleeping through the night, Camille cant decide what to do with her life, and Phoebe is a little too cagey about her new boyfriend. Roma knows her children are hiding things. What she doesnt know, what none of them know, is that Harry is suddenly haunted by the long-buried secret that drove him, decades ago, to relocate his young family to the California desert. As the ceremony nears, the family members are forced to confront the falsehoods upon which their lives are built. Set over the course of a sin...

“I sustain myself with the love of family.” (Maya Angelou)
The Family Tabor is a multi generational look at how a family comes together to honor a father, discover themselves in the process, and find that their hearts and love are very much intertwined with the happenings of their childhood, their parents, their grandparents and their heritage of being Jewish.
Harry Tabor, has done a lot of good rescuing families, performing com ...more
I have always loved books about family dramas and dynasties, all the way back to when I was a (very) precocious fifth-grader, where I bit my lip as my body tensed under the disapproving glare of a public librarian, checking out Danielle Steel sagas (Zoya! Jewels! Message from Nam!) and yearning to read the latest on my then-hero, Jackie Collins’ Lucky Santangelo.
Cherise Wolas’ The Family Tabor is by no means a quick, dirty and trashy trip through the misdeeds and buried skeletons of well-to-do ...more
4.5 *s rounded up. Henry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade. His grown children: Phoebe, Camille and Simon come home to celebrate with Harry and his wife, Roma. All these children bring their own hidden problems with them. Harry begins to remember darker pieces of his past. .
This is an extremely well written slower read - a deep character study. I came to love each one of these flawed characters. This novel deals with so many familiar personal and family problems and ultimately asks wh ...more

4stars...ARC to be published July 2018..more about the characters interior lives than action. ..lots of detail about the Jewish religion that I loved.
This is a GoodReads giveaway win.
I did NOT like this one at all. I'm not even sure what the point of the book was. I like a little bit of a back story if it's needed for clarity, but the majority of this book is back story on each member of the Tabor family. The story starts out telling about Harry Tabor getting a man of the year award and from there goes to him thinking about his past. Then it happens that way for each family member. The book is quite dull when I think about it, nothing happens ...more
The Family Tabor is a story biblical in its depth and breadth, biblical in its metaphors, and biblical in one man’s search for atonement; atonement for the sins of his father.
On the night Harry Tabor is to receive the honor of Palm Springs Man of the Decade, ge disappears, having just recently begun a conversation with either God or his own conscience and subconscious. The entire family, wife, Roma, daughters Phoebe and Camille, and son Simon, his wife, Elena, and adorable daughters Lucy and Isa ...more
Oh I loved this so much - a completely believable family, each with their own story and secrets.
I'm a huge fan of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby and though people might think this is the same Tabor family from that book - it's not - just the names remain the same, and even Joan gets a nod that made me smile.
I really felt I was in Palm Springs with the family - and in all the other places that each came from to reunite as adult siblings and parents. The perceptiveness of the descriptions of the s ...more
