A novel of great wisdom but light touch about love and loss and family?and how to survive them all. For fans of Elizabeth Strout and Lorrie Moore.
For the next twenty years, they stay together, through the challenges any couple faces and the ones no one expects: a three-night stand refuses to stop standing, threatening to destroy the relationship almost before it starts. Peg's sister abandons her children, leaving the family to fill in as best they can. With everyday heroism, they do their best with what they've got.
Then one day things change, and Marge has to work out what she's left with ? and if she still belongs to the family she's adopted as her own.
