From the Publisher: "You don't have to be a sucker for happy endings to love this book, but it helps."-- The New York Times Book Review.
"Eloquent. . .A moving and complete tale of the complicated phenomenon we call family."--People.
"At the forefront of this well-crafted story stands Cass, youngest and feistiest of the Keating sisters, a mother of three who enjoys hot sex in semipublic locations with husband Billy Medieros, her sweetheart since high school. During a season of emotional and financial upheavals within the Keating clan, the Medieroses' marriage becomes strained in ways that make Billy wonder whether Cass is more devoted to her family that to him. Then Billy adds to the stress by leaving his father-in-law's fleet and buying his own boat. His rebellion sets up the book's unexpected final episode, and electrifying disaster at sea that puts all of the characters back in touch with their deepest loyalties and passions."--Glamour.
"Rice has an elegant style, a sharp eye and a real warmth. In her hands families--and their values--seem worth cherishing."--San Francisco Chronicle.
