Mick and Megan may have been divorced for as many years as thy’d been married but that doesn’t mean that they’re not still in love.

It may mean that it’s time to get married again, though.

Depending on who you talk to. Mick says ‘it’s way past time’. Megan says ‘when the time is right’. Their three daughters are way past ready for them to re-tie the knot. Mick’s mom’s ready to stop caring for Mick and his over-sized house and return to her cottage. Kevin, their older son is fine. Conner is the issue. He just will not forgive and move on.

Not even when the son he’s been keeping a secret from everyone turns up on the doorstep on Thanksgiving day. What else can possibly happen to sabotage this glorious occasion?

My Thoughts

For the longest time I’ve been wanting to read Susan Wigg’s Lakeshore Chronicles. Well, guess what? Thais isn’t it! Yeah, I know but for some reason I saw the title and grabbed it. Boy was I lucky!

It was quite confusing at first because, gosh there are a LOT of people but being one of five myself I caught on quickly. I loved it! I understood how a family so very open and close could have so many closely guarded secrets. I understood how not matter the love they feel for each other that they fight. I really understood holidays with the family. Reading this book felt like being at home.

What I didn’t enjoy: I still remain irked. I know that very good people chose to leave their children with others. I know that many times it’s the best choice for the child BUT I honestly cannot get past the hurt that I’ve always felt. I will never understand how a mother can leave her children to pursue a career, go to college, or whatever. I’m not saying it’s wrong – I just don’t get it. So that there were ‘two’ of these mothers in this story was a very difficult thing for me.
