An intricate novel about how changes in family dynamic can ignite the flame of personal reawakening. Gloria Beaton is a self-made woman of substance. Defined by her trailblazing spirit, she is shunned by the new influences who have overtaken her Ontario establishment family and tainted it with dysfunctionality. Having recently ended a loveless marriage, at forty-nine, she finds herself cultivating a dual career and developing a relationship with a mesmerizing man twelve years her junior, Canadian-born Raj Mukherjee. As her family’s once burgeoning business flounders, Gloria is torn by having to make a painful decision: Should she once and for all embrace her own happiness, widening the divide between her and her kin? Or should she continue to protect her family’s values and traditions, sacrificing her need to be true to herself? Loyalties are tested, roles shift, and the tables inevitably turn. Facing Up to Change shines a light on how inextricably and, sometimes, painfully family, money, and love are linked.
