I fell in love with the Gogerty family of Dublin, Ireland. The story is a charming reflection on how our roles in our family change as we age. “Sandwich generation” Kevin is negotiating being a responsible parent on one hand and worrying about his prone-to-trouble mother on the there, all while having to accept that his wife is now the family breadwinner and he is a stay-at-home dad (albeit one who makes a few questionable decisions along the way). Teenager Aideen will capture the heart of anyone who’s ever felt misunderstood. Grandmother Millie is a lovable kleptomaniac and Dublin’s worst driver, and Kevin can’t decide if he wants to be a grown up or not. The funny dysfunctional Gogerty clan makes for a light and escapist read. This book made me happy!— Genevieve

“Filled with warmth and hilarity, this book reads like a mix of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Frye and a Maeve Binchy novel. The Irish setting is especially welcome on this side of the pond, and of the three plotlines following different generations, the absolute best paints 83-year-old pistol of a grandma Millie as a delightfully quirky and determined soul. A charming, offbeat novel — perfect to savor as we emerge from this particular winter.”
