ALL IN THE FAMILY is a quick read about a family with four daughters, Candace, Sharon, Debra and Angela, who have a no nonsense mother, Sara. For those of us with children, we know each child has their own personality, but these young women were almost on the brink of dysfunction at the mention of their hometown or their mother¿s name. In business, each woman is considered a powerhouse. Highly respected, they know what they want and they go after it with a no nonsense attitude. Situations that occurred in their childhood is still affecting them in their adult years. Debra has been married four years to a terrific man who loves her deeply, yet she¿s been keeping him from her family. Sharon, who they call Jackie, as a child had large teeth (she looked like a mule). She goes home twice a year, yet, no one notices that she is there. Candace overheard things as a child, so now she tolerates her mom but is unable to face her about the truth and instead just decides to stay away. Angela left home to follow a dream which turned out to be a nightmare. She does not want to be the only sister to remain on the farm without trying to follow her dreams. The young women get a reality check when they all receive a letter from their mother insisting that they come home for the family reunion in August. All four are uncertain if they should go and face the demons of their past or just leave well enough alone. But, they each will have the support of a strong man beside them to help them go through this trial. ALL IN THE FAMILY takes a look at each young woman through their own eyes to see how they view themselves through the eyes of their family. As you read you find a ton of surprises. It seems that the women were suffering from situations that were manifested by their aunt from their father¿s side of the family. Thanks to faith and determination of their strong mother, Sara, she gets her daughters on the right path. ALL IN THE FAMILY is a very good read. Although written by three different authors, you never fall off.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
