The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate togetherness: an indefinable, enviable kind of specialness. But they are also like all families, in that the stories they tell themselves reveal only part of the picture. Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. Tells a poignant yet unsentimental story in praise of family in all its emotional complexity.

Although this was a pleasant enough story, I wonder what the point was. This story unfolds and unfolds and unfolds but there's nothing here but "ordinary". There's nothing poignant, exciting, exhilarating in this story.
I almost didn't finish but wanted to know if this would end on a high. Nope.

While the story had some enjoyable descriptive narrative, I don't feel like it really went anywhere at the end of it all... I kept waiting for the significance of things to show up that seemed to just get washed away.
