But now her mind is playing tricks on her. The accounts won't reconcile and the murmuring she hears isn't the television. She ought to seek help, but she's terrified of being locked away in a mental hospital like her mother, Solange. So Carole hides her symptoms, withdraws from her family, and unwittingly sets her 11-year-old daughter Alison on a desperate search for meaning and power: in Tarot cards, in omens from a nearby river, and in a mysterious blue glass box belonging to her grandmother. An exploration of the power of courage and love to overcome a damning legacy, All the Best People celebrates the search for identity and grace in the most ordinary lives.

Excellent narration saves it from soap opera
Lisa Flanagan is a wonderful narrator. She can make any story better. She does that here. There is some strong writing ( the descriptions of Carol's mental deterioration are heartrending ) but there is also a very predictable plot "twist" that was just too obvious. The ending seemed a bit too neat, but it was nice that book ending with a an uplifting scene, after all the drama in the preceding pages.
