The Story

Things get bumpy when promising young novelist Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs to get her family’s approval of her newest work — a tell-all memoir dredging up long-kept family secrets. Daring her conservative parents to oppose her, Brooke draws a line in the sand, and when it is crossed, the result threatens to undo them all. Politics, lies and regrets collide in this biting, sharp and fiercely funny Pulitzer Prize finalist.
