The author takes a very interesting and different concept, the right of a mother to obtain visitation after walking out on them and her husband over a decade previously.
The two children do not know their biological mother nor have seen her in over a decade. They have settled in well with their father and soon to be two half-sister's and a woman who has been more of a mother to them than anyone else. So when they receive a court notice that their biological mother wants visitation, it throws their lives, and that of their father and soon to be members of the family into flux and turmoil.
While it is a battle, the mother gets a few visitation visits, initially. There is drama, misunderstandings, hard truths, relationship building, and a new extended family that creates even more issues for the two girls and their biological mother.
While some believe the girls are more of a possession and belong to them (grandfather), others feel that they have the right to be a part of their lives without taking other issues into consideration initially (biological mother), and others are possessive of them on a loving way as a part of their family (father and soon to be step-mother).
I enjoyed the premise of the novel and the point the author was making. I loved the characters, even those you just dislike from ones initial introduction. While I understood its inclusion, I did feel the final issue with the grandfather was a little extreme, but also made a point.
I felt the author portrayed the relationship building of the bio mom with the two girls relatively realistically. He hit many aspects of the confusion, mistakes, awkwardness, feelings, and understandings in a very honest and truthful manner.
He also hit on the issues of extended family, abusive relationships, family bonding and importance, enabling, and relationship building in many aspects.
While at times I had mixed feelings while reading this novel, in the end I found it to be an interesting one that left me many different feelings when it ended. The novel does make you think. While it is not a deeply moving or mostly negative novel, it is definitely one that brings up a fair amount of emotion.
