Entertaining book about family secrets and lies. I laughed, I cried. The older generation of family members remind me so much of my own family. They believe you let sleeping dogs lie so that no one gets hurt. The author puts a religious spin on this book and that is uplifting.

I don't know why I didn't like this book more, it had all of the makings of a great book, but for some reason, I didn't dig it as was just okay; maybe it was the pace. IDK. So much went on in the story, and I kind of feel as though the ending was incomplete. I don't know if I would read it again.

I enjoyed the book. It followed the story of a large close knit family that stuck together during difficult times. The extended Reynolds kept many secrets and the story deals with the implications and impacts of those secrets.
