“A painfully honest, moving family saga—and first novel—by sculptor, professor, and multigenre author Peck.…a candid portrayal of the challenges encountered by a successful professional woman balancing work, marriage and motherhood. …the novel is a touching, no-holds-barred depiction of a dysfunctional family on the brink of brokenness. Peck proves herself to be as much an artist with words as she is with other media.”
