Now, after letting Henry drift away, Susan is determined to make things right. But just as mother and son seem to make headway after embarking on a cross-country road-trip, things take a darker turn.When the family reconvenes in California, everybody must fight to find courage and humor in the face of a situation that threatens to change them all forever.
How About Some Amazon Reviews?
"This is a tremendously likable, funny and emotional story with a full and engaging cast of characters. The star in this particular crown is Edith Vale, a grande dame who takes on many colors in the story and ultimately becomes a hero despite being a generally impossible and domineering personality. I hope that someday this is optioned for a movie - Edith Vale is a dream part for an actress of a certain age."
"Although it is set in contemporary Pasadena and Boston, Jason Pomerance’s novel reminds me of the classic mid-century films of Joseph and Herman Mankiewicz. It’s totally engaging, funny and warm-hearted. Pomerance is a natural storyteller with a sociologist’s attention to mores and manners. It’s a great book to curl up with on a rainy weekend or under a beach umbrella."
