Through the first 100 pages, we see how such a broken family's life is falling apart. Marriage may not be easy for some and that is clearly observed through Barb and John Frost's marriage. Their children, Juliet and Sadie, are grown women and ever since giving birth to them, their relationship has been full or arguments and flaws. Their children were living their own individual lives with their family and friends when ever changed during John's stroke. Secrets were revealed and the parents' favorites came back to them. Barb's favorite was Juliet while John's favorite is Sadie and that is obvious through the way they interact with them and treat them. Towards the middle and the end of this compelling book, these two generations of women have to mend their issues and relationships by following which feels best for them. Although Sadie's future life was hard for her to depict and Barb's relationship with John was atrocious time by time and Juliet's panic attacks were becoming worse due to work complications, working together with their families and the ones that they love allowed for them to fix it. When the stroke first hit their family, they thought negatively, yet in all of this, their families grew close and their lives became okay. Unfortunately, John ended up dying but that is how life is.
