Product Details


“In prose as sparkling as a champagne toast, McDonough’s delicious new novel gathers together one extraordinary wedding, two complicated families, and then shows how a single day can change everything.  A funny, moving look at the bonds of love, the ties of family, and the yearning for happily ever after.” — Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of PICTURES OF YOU

"A touching, airy novel that manages to meld concerns of family members spanning four generations into a delightfully well-written story. Readers who enjoy Mary Kay Andrews and Nora Roberts will relate to the Silverstein family as it embraces the deep wells of emotion that seem to surface only at major family events. With an authorial voice that switches deftly between impulsive teen-speak and a stately matriarch’s flashbacks, McDonough’s skill is to be commended. A tender, clever story with emotional heft."–Booklist

"A funny, moving look at the bonds of love, the ties of family, and the yearning for happily ever after." —New York Times bestselling author Caroline Leavitt

"A confection that is not only a page turner but a poignant view of family life…Book clubs will swoon." —New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani

"A wise and witty novel…McDonough limns the ups and downs of family life with a grace that brings to mind Cathleen Schine at her best." –Megan McAndrew, author of Dreaming in French

"Spirited, entertaining, and a delight to read…a penetrating glimpse into the lives of one particular family." –Lucy Jackson, author of Posh

"Emotional and evocative, hilarious and harrowing…a must-read for every mother and daughter who’ve ever dreamed of, fought over, and loved each other through a wedding day." —New York Times bestselling author Pamela Redmond Satran

"A playful yet touching parsing of the tugs and tangles of familial bonds…exploring contemporary suburban turf with an anthropologist’s sharp eye."–Sally Koslow, author of Slouching Toward Adulthood: Observations from the Not-So-Empty Nest

"An interesting take on the wedding novel that doesn’t place the bride and groom at the center. Fans of women’s fiction about weddings and family drama are sure to enjoy."—Library Journal
