(Starred review) Stellar.… A bittersweet, hope-filled look at two quirky families that have broken apart and are trying to find their way back to one another.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review) Tyler does not disappoint. Her characters are distinctly drawn and their stories layered.… The result is a compelling look at the need for relevance, being offered a second chance, and deciding whether to take it. Highly recommended.
Library Journal


(Starred review) Brilliant, charming, and book-club-ready.… Tyler’s bedazzling yet fathoms-deep feel-good novel is wrought with nimble humor, intricate understanding of emotions and family, place and community—and bounteous pleasure in quirkiness, discovery, and renewal.
Booklist


Tyler’s characteristic warmth and affection for her characters are engaging as eve.… [They are] all vibrantly portrayed with her usual low-key gusto and bracingly dark humor.… Power dynamics are never simple in Tyler’s portraits of marriage.
