What did you love best about Reunion?
Imagine sitting on a tarmac, stuck on a plane, is when you find out that your father has committed suicide. What a way to open the book! The caveat? Kate’s not really close with her father at all. In fact, there’s quite a bit of resentment there. The way she paints her father isn’t very pretty. I was hooked and didn’t want to stop listening to the book right from the get-go.
Kate travels with her siblings to Atlanta to bury their father. You don’t find many books placed in Atlanta, but I loved hearing all the landmarks noted in the book.
Kate struggles as she’s surrounded by step-mothers, half siblings, and her brother and sister, whom she’s hiding a big piece of her life from. Kate hasn’t come clean to them yet about being in massive debt and practically having no money now that her husband wants a divorce. Oh yeah, she hasn’t told them about that yet, or how she was unfaithful in her marriage. Because of their father, Kate and her siblings are totally against infidelity. No wonder Kate hasn’t found a way to tell them. Once Kate finally takes a good look at herself can she feel the closest to her family in a long time. The concept of keeping parts of you hidden from those you’re supposed to be closest to was very interesting to read throughout the book. The author explores not only the secrets we keep from the people who believe they know us best, but also the secrets we keep from ourselves. This really spoke to me.

I have a long commute and audio books keep me awake and keep me from flipping songs on my ipod! this was just an okay listen.... nothing great, but nothing terrible. i much preferred "this is where I leave you".
