Very good, as usual with this author, although having myself been on the receiving end of similar trials, I did have an issue with the ending of this book, as it seemed to wrap up a little too easily and neatly.

In the mine-fields of blended families, Trollope is fearless and unsentimental as she looks at the situation from all angles—from that of the motherless adult daughter who thwarts her brother’s as well as her father’s relationships, to the terrible teens who want to protect their ineffectual, selfish mother. All through this web of human connections she keeps you involved by empathising with the characters and with the very idea of family life.

A story of step-families; a lot about relationships broken, protected, about jealousies and discomfort, about loyalties, pettines, self-absorption, passivity; the whole range of family emotions.
