Loved it!!! Neil and Elaine are a Jewish couple with four grown children. While they loved their children, they always were like "a cult of two". Because of this, the children often felt excluded. Then suddenly Elaine's beloved Neil dies. Now Elaine has time to travel and spend time with her children and their families. She gets to know them as she never did before. There's Sandy who is now known as Sarah, married to Moshe and living with their children in an Orthodox area of Jerusalem. Then there is Sarah's twin Lisa who is adopting a child from Russia. Peter's marriage seems to be on the rocks. And Denis fights for acceptance of his gay partner Andrew. A wonderful story of sibling bonds and family struggles.
