Thoroughly enjoyed Good to A Fault! I would highly recommend this novel and encourage others to put this on a reading list! Basic premise: main character, a sad middle-aged woman perhaps a bit depressed with her lack of life, finds herself daydreaming while driving. She crashes into a nomadic family who receive hospital treatment for their injuries. While in hospital, the mother - Lorraine - is diagnosed with cancer. The father, a no-good wanderer, takes off and leaves the protagonist to care for three children and a somewhat senile mother-in-law.

Shortlisted for the Giller Prize and a Canada reads selection!
