A compassionate and insightful novel about family, broken dreams, and holding on to everything in life that matters.
When the Nolan family patriarch dies suddenly of a heart attack, the Nolan siblings and cousins quickly learn of their shared inheritance — the sprawling 150-acre property in Stowe, VT they jokingly call the Family Compound. But with each at a different place in life, reaching a unanimous decision regarding the property seems unlikely.
Penny struggles with anxiety and craves stability in an unstable world. Halsey is divorced, raising her child, and contending with an unexpected realization about herself. William can be counted on only to fall in love as capriciously as he falls out of it. And both Laurie and Chris are floundering after betrayals―hers professional, his personal. With little in common except childhood memories, the five face impossible choices. It’s going to take sacrifice, compromise, and a plan for moving forward they can all agree to. Until then, the fate of the Nolan family compound is as uncertain as their paths in life.
As five lives in flux converge and tensions run high, the cousins will have to rely on each other if they’re to have any hope of preserving the past. Liz Parker writes with clear affection for these five floundering adult children and all their blunders, heartbreaks and frailties. Witty, captivating, and emotionally astute, you will cheer for these members of THE FAMILY COMPOUND as they fall in love and find their true callings.
I’m so excited to be the stop on the tour for The Family Compound today! I really enjoyed the authors last book, All Are Welcome last year and am looking forward to her latest.
