When Billy, the youngest sibling - with a history of addiction, grand ideas, and misdemeanors - passes out during a birthday dinner, the family takes up the unfinished business of Billy's sobriety. Billy's misadventures have too long consumed their lives. As the older children contend with their own failures, they compete for the approval of the elderly parents they adore, but can't quite forgive. With knowing humour and sure-handed storytelling, Janet Peery reveals a family at its best and worst, with old wounds and new, its fractures and feuds, and yet its unbreakable bonds.
