Jonathan Evison - bestselling author of West of Here, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, and All About Lulu - has crafted a bighearted novel with a supremely endearing heroine at its center. Through Harriet, he paints a bittersweet portrait of a postmodern everywoman with great warmth, humanity, and humor. Part dysfunctional love story, part poignant exploration of the mother/daughter relationship, nothing is what it seems in this tale of acceptance, reexamination, forgiveness, and, ultimately, healing. It is sure to appeal to admirers of Evison's previous work, as well as fans of such writers as Meg Wolitzer, Junot Diaz, and Karen Joy.

Absolutely and completely.
I don't want to give away anything here. The widow discovers her husband had a secret. The mother and daughter have a difficult relationship. There you go.
This is a really great, fun book, and the best part, for me, is discovering a male author who can so completely inhabit the hearts and minds of women. He does an astonishing job! I want to meet Jonathan Evison and marry him. After I divorce the husband I have now.

Really enjoyed this book and narration. One little thing...the narrator pronounces Harriet's town incorrectly. Sequim is pronounced like Squim, not "Seaquim". I think it's important to say this correctly.
