(From the publisher):
It's the start of summer when Ginny and William Owen's quiet, peaceful life in Burlington, Vermont, comes to an abrupt hault.
First, their eldest daughter, Lillian, shows up, with her two children in tow, to escape her crumbling marriage. Next, Lillian's younger brother, Stephen arrives for the weekend, accompanied by his pregnant wife, Jane, an ambitious and misunderstood Wall Street workaholic-but their visit is extended indefinately when Jane is put on mandatory bed rest.
And by the time Rachel, the youngest Owen sibling, appears, fleeing the difficulties of her single life in New York City, the senior Owens are once again consumed by the chaos and stress of their early parenting days-only this time around, their home is filled with grown-up children and their adult problems.
