Publisher's Summary

"What's a marriage license going to give us that we don’t already have?" "Proof," he said. "Of what?" "That we're a family."
Andi and David have settled happily into Andi's Northampton home, but David wants more. He wants them to get married. But their discussion is put on hold when Wylie, a fifteen-year-old girl, shows up in their backyard, bearing news that takes David’s mind off the future and sends it spiraling into the past. Reeling from David's news, Andi receives a startling announcement of her own, one that leads to a relationship with her estranged mother. As Andi and her mother get closer and Wylie weaves her way into their lives, Andi finds solace in an old comfort: her ex-fiancé. With the past threatening to eclipse their future, the timing for a wedding is all wrong. But if Andi knows anything about timing, it's that there's no time to waste.

Too Close To Home

The outline of this story was so eerily close to one part of my life that's it's taken me more than a couple of months to be able to write this review.
Suddenly finding out one day that you have a fifteen year old daughter is one of those surreal experiences that for months afterwards there is the sense that it wasn't real; it was something that you thought about or wrote about, or was part of a dream. It can't be anything that actually happened; can it? The uncertainty in this narrative was certainly familiar to both of us as was the ambivalence and fear that we both felt. Discomfort becomes a very familiar sensation; particularly for the daughter as she meets grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins for the first time.
Perhaps I'm far too close to the story to appreciate it but I found the book to be seriously lacking in depth and detail. There were far too many holes in the narrative and I found the conclusion less than satisfying. In short I chose this selection because it was so close to my own experience and found out that was all it was for me. This book didn't add a thing for me; whether the fault was the author's or mine; i can't say.

Not what I thought

Strange book to finish the story I loved. Glad I read it (would not have liked it if it was an independent book) but didn't like it like I did the others.
