The Millers, an ordinary American family, are travelling to a small island off the coast of Maine where they will celebrate their father's 75th birthday. All three adult children are expecting children of their own and at the same time find themselves at major crossroads in their lives. As the Miller family gathers, an unexpected incident shatters the celebrations and it seems that nobody will emerge quite the same. Written with great emotional and psychological insight, The Birthdays is a journey into the harrowing and redemptive heart of family life.This story of marriage and impending parenthood is certain to establish Heidi Pitlor as a rare new voice in fiction.
