Told from the perspective of different family members, this is the story of any family. Each person views events differently. They harbor resentment at past slights, things that others in the family might not have even noticed. Add to this mix a mother who realizes she wants to be more than a mother and doctor’s wife. When the family home is to be sold, the adult children return to clash and reconcile.

An engrossing novel about 4 children, their loving father, and their unhappy mother, who withdraws more and more from family life, despite the children's efforts--their crusade--to draw her back in. If you liked Anne Tyler's "A Spool of Blue Thread," or Mary Lawson's "Road Ends," you will love this book, too.
