This is a new author to me. If you enjoy reading about estranged and dysfunctional families, then I think you would enjoy this one — I did. It’s a quick read and told through the narration of the main character, Kate Pulaski.
The first line of the book is, “On June 16, at roughly eight-thirty in the morning, I get the phone call that my father is dead,” which makes you want to keep reading. At least I did.
Kate’s life is pretty well in shambles before she finds out about her father’s suicidal death. Her siblings tell her she has to travel to Atlanta for the funeral, which she can neither afford nor wants to face. The book covers the next four days of her coping with face-to-face encounters with her four stepmothers and many half-siblings. As Kate haphazardly deals with her messed up life, she also comes to terms with her relationship with her father. The book has sibling relationships, adultery, childhood issues, and so much more, so enjoy.
