Life is meant to be savored, but thatâ€™s not easy with no
family, limited prospects and a past youâ€™d rather not talk
about. Still, Callie Smith doesnâ€™t know how to feel when she
discovers she has a brother and a sisterâ€”Malcolm, who grew
up with affection, wealth and privilege, and Keira, a
streetwise twelve-year-old. Callie doesnâ€™t love being alone,
but at least itâ€™s safe. Despite her trepidation, she moves
into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather
on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this
will be the start of a whole new life.
But starting over can be messy. Callie and Keira fit in with
each other, but not with their posh new lifestyle, leaving
Malcolm feeling like the odd man out in his own home. He was
clever enough to turn a sleepy Seattle mail-order food
catalog into an online gourmet powerhouse, yet he canâ€™t
figure out how to help his new sisters feel secure. Becoming
a family will take patience, humor, a little bit of wine and
a whole lot of love. But love isnâ€™t Malcolmâ€™s strong
suitâ€¦until a beautiful barista teaches him that an open
heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.
In this emotional, funny and heartfelt story, Susan Mallery
masterfully explores the definition of a modern
familyâ€”blended by surprise, not by choiceâ€”and how those
complicated relationships can add unexpected richness to life.
