A wry, wise new novel of Southern dreams and second chances. On the morning of her birthday, Vonda Thayer awakes from her American Dream to realize she?s living a domestic nightmare. She plays happy homemaker to two whiny, self-absorbed teenagers, a ranting, divorced monster-in-law, and her knocked-up oldest daughter, who?s just moved home to escape a deadbeat boyfriend. In her free time, Vonda stalks her no-good husband and his bimbo du jour. And now her ailing, cantankerous father-in- law?the monster?s very estranged ex?needs a nursemaid and a place to recover. Vonda seriously needs to replace that white picket fence with barbed wire. When a hurricane rips through north Florida, it threatens to tear her already fragile family completely apart. It?s up to Vonda to help them weather the storm and learn a few survival instincts in the process. The sun?s going down on this desperate housewife, and dawn?s breaking on a new, improved Vonda Thayer?
Geri Buckley is the author of For Pete’s Sake.
