As Cynthia ruminates on her changing circumstances, life forces her to take a look at those she calls family.
A former literary notable, Cynthia Wilkes is looking down the barrel of an empty nest, an empty desk, and an endless supply of empty pages when an unlikely protégé comes calling, setting in motion a chain of events that will force Cynthia, and those closest to her, to redefine the idea of family and of self. This novel is a humorous look at the creation and reconstruction of family and the lingering hold of the people we keep close and those we try to let go … the siblings and step-siblings, parents and step-parents, spouses and exes, the friends, the colleagues, and the others we call family.
