For all fans of Carol Shields and Jane Smiley: a warm, wise and wonderful evocation of family love and redemption set on an island off Seattle.

No family is ordinary, but this family is less ordinary than most... When Sunny returns to her mother's house on Isadora Island off the west coast of Seattle with her small daughter, Brio, in tow, she's in retreat from her mad, difficult life in LA. Celia's famous B&B, Henry's House, a tranquil oasis, seems the perfect place to recover and give Brio a sense of real family life.

But Celia's life has been anything but ordinary. Strong, beautiful and independent, with a tragedy in her past, Celia has always believed in unfettered love, and took many male lovers and partners, and had children by a number of them. Her three children, half-sisters Sunny, Victoria and Elizabeth, have followed different paths to their mother: Sunny, nursing her own secret; Victoria, secretly married to her husband years ago but too scared to tell the disapproving Celia; and Celia's favourite, the free-spirited Bethie, who has just announced her engagement to Wade, an ex-drug addict survivor who now runs a personal development programme for other `Re-coverees'. The whole extended family gather on the Island at Henry's House for Bethie's engagement party, and there the true strength of family love is put to the test....
