GOOD FAMILY - TERRY GAMBLE

The Addison family always spent their summer retreats on Lake Michigan.  Eleven years ago, Maddie Addison's infant daughter died in the crib at this summer house.  She has not been home since this time.

Maddie now lives in New York and works as a documentary filmmaker.  She received a call from her sister, Dana, informing her that their mother had suffered a stroke and was dying.  She now had to go back home after all these years. 

When Maddie arrives, she has to face many other relatives including cousins and a niece.  Maddie must now face the past and at the same time contemplate her future. 

How does Maddie handle her return home after eleven years of being distant from her relatives?

Terry Gamble has written a compassionate novel about family relationships.  She makes the reader feel like they are right there in the middle of the summer house listening to everything being told about their past relationships.  The characters are memorable and at times funny.  This is an excellent read and one you should add to your reading list.
