Summary
"Five minutes before her flight is set to take off, Kate Pulaski, failed screenwriter and newly failed wife with scarcely a hundred dollars to her name, learns that her estranged father has killed himself. More shocked than saddened by the news, she gives in to her siblings' request that she join them, along with her many half-siblings and most of her father's five former wives, in Atlanta, their birthplace, for a final farewell. REUNION takes place over the following four days, as family secrets are revealed, personal foibles are exposed, and Kate-- an inveterate liar looking for a way to come clean-- slowly begins to acknowledge the overwhelming similarities between herself and the man she never thought she'd claim as an influence, much less a father" --
Summary
When Kate learns that her estranged father has committed suicide, she and her siblings travel to Atlanta to bury him and work out years of resentment. Life seems overwhelming to Kate as she battles with infidelity, divorce, and a massive debt. It’s only when she takes a good look at herself that she begins to heal the rift in her family. Unfolding like a saga, this short book packs a punch. -- Elizabeth Kanouse for LibraryReads
