The Evidence Against Her, by Robb Forman Dew. Little Brown. 327 pages. $24.95. Those happy families, purportedly all alike, are simply very skilled at masking or repressing the unhappiness that lurks beneath the placid surface they present to the outside world. Robb Forman Dew, whose saga of small-town familial angst, Dale Loves Sophie to Death, won the 1995 National Book Award, illustrates the fragility and unacknowledged cost of one family's happiness in her new novel, The Evidence Against Her. In the small Ohio town of Washburn in the early 1900s, Agnes Claytor, the eldest daughter of a spectacularly unhappy family, struggles against the odds to achieve a happy family of her own. Her distracted, manic-depressive mother, Catherine, had been the belle of Natchez, Miss.

The Dew Tour will not return to Baltimore this summer. The action sports tour, which features skateboarding, BMX and other extreme sports, started in Baltimore in 2007, returned in 2008 and was expected to make its third appearance at Camden Yards this year. Instead, the Dew Tour will begin its schedule in Chicago in late June and will make its Boston debut in late July. The chance to break into two larger markets with a new format showcasing individual sports was too great to pass up, said Chris Prybylo, the tour's vice president of events.
