    Loved the very real characters portrayed in this fast read!

    This is a great read for anyone plunked in the middle of the "sandwich" generation. Life is difficult at times, but combining your own aging process, your parents decline in the ability for caring for themselves, and dealing with the teens in your house can cause havoc for most people. Grace under pressure is not a given in all families, no matter how affluent you are.

    There is a magic that occurs when families deal with intergenerational issues together. Kietzman weaves a good story, nudging the reader to think how she would approach the problems given the same circumstances.

    I loved how this book does not have the "happily ever after" ending. Instead you are left wondering how the family fared over time - just like real life!

    This is not an escapist book: however, if you can reserve judgement, you will find many levels of the human condition to explore that will leave you cheering for the villain and the heros.

    Fantastic.......but

    This book held me from the first page! The plot and characters are almost like people you know....but the story to me was not complete. Hopefully there is second book that brings you back to complete the tale.
