Three siblings, all dealing with issues in their own lives, have to come together to deal with the impending death of their father. I really enjoyed this author's writing style, and feel like she captured the emotions of the characters in a very real and subtle way.

I loved this book! I usually don't like writing that is too into detail, but this author really hits the mark with her descriptions of what the characters are thinking and feeling. Mothers will especially get her descriptions of mothering young children. A good, quick read.
