Publisher Description

Two empty nesters living a quiet life have their lives changed overnight as each of their children returns home to recover under the guidance of their parents in this story of relationships and familial connections.
It's early summer when Ginny and William's peaceful life in Vermont comes to an abrupt halt.

First, their daughter Lillian arrives, with her two children in tow, to escape her crumbling marriage. Next, their son Stephen and his pregnant wife Jane show up for a weekend visit, which extends indefinitely when Jane ends up on bed rest. When their youngest daughter Rachel appears, fleeing her difficult life in New York, Ginny and William find themselves consumed again by the chaos of parenthood -- only this time around, their children are facing adult problems.

By summer's end, the family gains new ideas of loyalty and responsibility, exposing the challenges of surviving the modern family -- and the old adage, once a parent, always a parent, has never rung so true.

The Arrivals

Terrific read. Enjoyed every paragraph. Read it on vacation on my iPad. Since you have to be in the shade to read from the tablet I am returning home without a tan. As a maturing parent of maturing adult children I can see that parenting never stops. It's one job that has a lifetime of security. So looking forward to Meg Mitchell Moore's next novel!

Heartwarming ❤️

I chose this book because one of my favorite authors (Elin Hilderbrand) said that Meg Mitchell Moore was one of her favorite authors! I loved it! The book was so touching and lovely with real life situations and relatable characters. I would recommend to anyone with grown children and grandkids and am looking forward to reading more by this author. 👍 Nevreader
