Kate is mortified when she finds out her mother is pregnant. She doesn't want to think about her parents having sex and she certainly doesn't want another baby in the house and she doesn't want the whole town talking about her family having another baby. She becomes increasingly hostile to her mom, acting out more and more like a rebellious teenager and at the end refusing to go see her at the hospital and hospice.
Fast forward 20 years, Kate is living in London, has a great great relationship with Ben and finds herself expecting a little one. Ben keeps insisting that they go back to visit her family she is resistant but he finally books a flight and makes her go. As you might expect, things don't go smoothly, 20 years of resentment can take some time to work out.
Kate's family doesn't give up on her though and she is able to work through her issues.
This book was well written and from several different viewpoints so you knew where each person was coming from, this reader found it engaging and thought-provoking. I found myself feeling thankful that my own family didn't have to go through this but I think every family has its own trials to go through and hopefully we all emerge stronger on the other side like Kate did with her family.
Highly recommended and two thumbs up!
Right from the beginning, the reader wonders why Kate is so adverse to returning to her country of origin. At first I was frustrated with her insistence on not returning, but as the plot unfolded, I fully understood and respected her decision to delay any confrontation with her past. A well done book I thoroughly enjoyed.
You must read this book it will make a person who lost their mother regret how they treated her before she passed on.
