I read my first Rossiter last month, and I won this one and was overjoyed to see the connections between the two. This is the story of the extended Coleman family: grandparents down to dogs, and how they are and remain connected through births, deaths, coming togethers, falling aparts, all wrapped up in glorious Cape Cod style. Well worth seeking out

Ms. Rossiter has done it again! What a fantastic heart-warmer! Noah and Laney Coleman have a wonderful but chaotic life, centered around their family and their old Cape Cod-style house. Noah is a minister and Laney teaches first grade. Life is never dull for the Colemans –(especially with five sons), but there’s nothing they can’t handle. That is, until Noah’s Brother, Micah “Rocks the boat”. He has become engaged to a sweet lady named Beryl Graham and asks if they can hold the wedding on Noah and Laney’s stretch of beach. Without consulting Laney, Noah agrees. Ordinarily, it wouldn’t put a hitch into any other plans—but when medical and serious family problems rear their ugly heads, Laney wonders and worries how everything will get accomplished in time for the nuptials. Add to the already “Full plate”, mounting worries concerning Asa’s (Noah and Micah’s Father) noticeable frailty and waning interest in family participation, perhaps creating another cause for alarm. Against Maddie’s (Asa’s wife) wishes, not a word is spoken within the family about what might, or might not be wrong. The Author has tackled the tender and difficult topics of cancer and how it affects the strongest of families, bullying –which has become an ongoing, national problem that must be addressed for the safety, physical, and mental well-being of children of any age, and grief ..which is handled differently by everyone. I’m going to warn you—once you start reading this, you won’t want to lay it down. You’ll gasp, laugh, and hold your breath, praying for the best. You will definitely need a box of tissues close at hand. On a lighter note, you’ll love the Colemans (and their In-laws, “Out-laws”, their beautiful, sweet Labs and all who cherish them), making you wait impatiently for a future volume and the next generation’s heart-warming stories. Ms. Rossiter pulls you right in, instantly making you feel like you are a part of the Coleman family. She has graciously included a handy listing of characters plus a couple of delicious-sounding “Coleman Family” recipes you’re sure to want to try. I’m planning on trying the peach cobbler, myself! You don’t need to read her first three volumes to understand and enjoy this prize-winner, but I’m betting you’ll want to delve into: “The Gin and Chowder Club”, “More Than You Know”, and “Words Get In The Way”. If there is one thought-provoking message I combed from this book, it is about the importance of embracing and savoring every moment we have been given and to tell those we love (and extending kindness to those we don’t) that we love them. It will make a difference in someone’s life, as well as yours. Don’t miss this passionate volume!
