A piercing and hilarious story about love, family, and redemption by the author of "The Frog King."
Jack Tennant is going home. Against his better judgment, he has succumbed to his mother's guilt-laden pleas that he see his estranged father. Jack's do-gooder girlfriend believes that this trip is a chance for Jack to achieve peace with his family, but there's a lot she doesn't know about the Tennants. So Jack finds himself in the uncomfortable position of having to make a decision he's avoided for years. Should he walk away and leave his crazy family to solve their problems without him? Or should he try to mend fences that have been broken for as long as he can remember?
