Therese Anne Fowler is a contemporary American author. She is best known for Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, published in 2013.



This story is reminiscent of stories already told involving a dying parent with plans to reunite their children with plans in the will to sell a jointly owned inherited home. The story is different yet the same anticipated plot. The cast of characters here has the matriarch, Marti planning her funeral after her death from stage 4 lung cancer. Her husband Leo had already passed away at 66 years old. She has a secret, of course, which will only be disclosed after her death and the reunion of her 3 daughters.

Beck is an unhappily married freelance journalist married to Paul, an editor for 25 yrs with 2 adult children and a granddaughter. She has aspirations of writing a novel in the scenic Maine cottage. Claire is a pediatric cardiologist who is recently divorced but still holds a torch for an unrequited crush for years. Sophie is living the Instagram-ready life spending more money than she has to fit in with the glamorous, fashionable celebrities. She struggles to keep her IRS "irregularities" a secret. The Geller sister all seem to have drifted apart from each other and this reunion just adds stress to their already chaotic lives. They each have "secrets" or situations for which they feel embarrassed and try to present themselves as successful adults.

The façade is soon exposed when CJ Reynolds, a southern with a hidden past of his own, appears as the buyer of their family Mount Desert Island, Maine cottage. The sisters never expected their mother would want them to sell it when she died. It becomes more complicated when his relationship with one of the sisters is exposed. Again, the family need to share their secrets and lives in order to move forward and possibly reunite the family again.

I picked up this ARC at ALA 2019 and finally got around to reading it. It was alright. Not a very inventive or unexpected plot. Character development is okay (except for the cartoony main villian), but too many unnecessary backstories that disrupts the momentum. Drips with white guilt yet also white excuses. Not recommended.

Overblown dramatics, too many stereotypes
