"Sometimes you have to break a family to fix it. From the New York Times bestselling author of Life and Other Inconveniences comes a new novel of heartbreaking truths and hilarious honesty about what family really means. Barb and John Frost are testy and bored with each other after fifty years of marriage. At least they have their daughters--Barb's favorite, Juliet; and John's darling, Sadie. The girls themselves couldn't be more different, but at least they got along, more or less. Until the day John has a stroke, and their house of cards came tumbling down. Now Sadie has to come home to care for her beloved dad--and face the love of her old life. Now Juliet has to wonder if people will notice that despite her perfect life, she's spending an increasing amount of time in the closet having panic attacks. And now Barb and John will finally have to face what's been going on in their marriage all along"-- Provided by publisher.

This was well done.

My only issue is that about 95% of the book was spent setting up the characters, and only the last 5% or so was spent on the resolution and coming together.

After all that investment of time learning about their problems, I wanted more time dedicated to reading about their happily ever after.

This is a very engaging story about a complicated, messy family situation. I really connected to the characters in this one. It's a pretty emotional story and I would recommend it if you like a book that you can get really involved in.

This book grabbed me on page 2! I literally couldn't put it down. Highly recommend.
