Summary
McMillan's high-spirited novel introduces the Price family: matriarch Viola, her sometimes-husband Cecil, and their four adult kids, each of whom sees life--and one another--through thick and thin and entirely on their own terms. With her hallmark exuberance and sassy cast of characters, the author takes readers into the hearts, minds, and souls of America
Summary
Viola's husband Cecil has walked out on his family for the last time. Their four adult children just can't seem to get their acts together either
