I could not put the book down and almost finished it in one night! I really felt as if I was living in the 60’s and 70’s with this family. I could picture the rooms the furniture and feel the textures. I could smell the food and I felt the pangs of growing up and letting go of the ties that bind. Bernie was quite the father and this reminds all of us that parenting is hard. Lorrie is gifted as she is fearless and leaves nothing to our imagination, as she bares her soul and lets us share in those moments. Loved it!
