Author: Dana Precious
What a funny, well-written book. Dana Precious writes with heart and humor, often hitting on a funny note when you least expect it. Got a crazy family? Don’t we all? 🙂
When Jeannie Thompson’s boyfriend proposes, she doesn’t say yes right away… She’s already had one failed marriage and she feels she must explain – it’s all her family’s fault! She starts telling him the story of one summer – a wedding, a surprise wedding the next day, granny gone wild (that’s one parade nobody will forget for a while!), a sex scandal and a murder thrown in just for interest. All laid at the feet of her family.
In between these tales, her life is falling apart – a co-worker seems to be setting her up for failure, she alienates her brother and sisters and her boyfriend is becoming more and more distant. When everything completely falls apart she does the only thing she can think to do – she goes home to her crazy family.
