"A gem of a book." —Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

How much can a family forgive?

Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses—the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

In Mary Beth Keane's extraordinary novel, a lifelong friendship and love blossoms between Kate Gleeson and Peter Stanhope, born six months apart. One shocking night their loyalties are divided, and their bond will be tested again and again over the next thirty years. Heartbreaking and redemptive, Ask Again, Yes is a gorgeous and generous portrait of the daily intimacies of marriage and the power of forgiveness.

Ask Again, Yes

A book about life , family and friends. Loneliness and hope.

Unputdownable

This story was immediately engaging, and accurately highlighted struggles in life including mental illness, alcoholism, devotion, and forgiveness. I am really looking forward to Keane’s next novel. She is a brilliant writer.

Completely accurate character development

The author understood what is like to be family member of someone in law-enforcement. There were times that I felt I was reading about my own life and identified with Kate so much. The author also understood mental health issues. This was an excellent read but a bit emotional. I was grateful that she ended it in the positive because as many difficulties as we have in our lives, we can look back and realize difficulties don’t change who we are.
