Is it really All Right Here?!

In some ways this book is all about the normal dysfunctions of life, yet it's a hard to put down book.  In her book, All Right Here: A Darling Family Novel, by Carre Armstrong Gardner has written an easy to read book about a family in turmoil.

Ivy Darling is married to Nick Mason, but still uses her maiden name which infuriates her mother in law.  Her sister in laws don't like her and seek to hurt her at every chance.  Ivy and Nick want children but can't, and it is the cause of tension in their lives.  Nick is very regimented in his life, which is the opposite of Ivy.  Then one day three children enter their lives.  The children are African American who have not had real parenting.

Ivy is excited, Nick is not.  Yet, the children stay and stay.  But their marriage is crumbling.  Ultimately, they have some real decisions which need to be made.  What will they choose? 

This was an easy to read book, and a good book.

The author, Carre Armstrong Gardner has worked in Russia for 3 years working with at risk children.  Which highlights some of her passion for writing this book.

I received this book at no cost from Tyndale House Publishers, in exchange for an honest review.
