Making Room for George: A Love Story by D. Ellis Phelps

Novel based on real events:

Bet has had it. Twenty-five years of marriage to her husband, Steve; raising three kids; and denying her own needs have left her with the extreme conviction that it is finally her turn to fly.

Enter George: Steve's incorrigible father who's in trouble. Something has to be done, but, George moving in with Bet and Steve could prove to be more than the family can bear.

In between infidelity, resentment, and making room for George, Bet realizes what she's really been denying. And this, changes everything.
