Catherine had vowed long ago to be the kind of mother she’d never known herself, but somewhere along the way things became muddled. One by one her three children rebelled, leaving her outwardly perfect family in disarray. As if their household isn’t disrupted enough, Catherine’s strange sister-in-law moves in — uninvited.

Into the chaos steps a new neighbor, as different from Catherine as any woman could be. Catherine is both appalled and fascinated by the unique way Barb’s family interprets life’s trials, and she is inexplicably drawn to them. When tragedy strikes, she finds herself longing to discover the secret to their joyful, contented lives.
