Summary
Franny and Jim Post are off to Mallorca in Spain to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. Joining them is their daughter, Sylvia, a recent high school graduate awash in self-pity, their supposedly successful son Bobby and his girlfriend Carmen, who's not a family favorite, and Franny's friend Charles and his husband Lawrence. Jim's recent affair puts a damper on the vacation from the start and as the book progresses, other secrets are revealed and their family unity is put to the test.
Critique
A breezy read about families and marriage, about secrets old and new, and about the ties that can bind as well as fray.
